Help End Canada's Shameful Commercial Seal Slaughter
Canada's commercial seal slaughter, in which tens of
thousands of harp seals are shot and bludgeoned to death, is a shadow of what
it used to be, now that the US, the EU and Russia have all banned seal-product
imports. And with a new progressive-minded Prime Minister in power, there's new
hope for bringing the cruel and wasteful seal slaughter to an end.
Canada's new Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, supports LGBT rights, Syrian refugees and gender equality. Please join PETA in urging him to extend his compassion even further and usher in a new era of kindness and fiscal responsibility by ending federal subsidies of the commercial seal slaughter, as Norway recently did.
Even if you have taken action in the past on this issue, your voice is needed now more than ever! The world has rejected seal products, and it's time for Canada to help the sealers make the transition out of this dying industry, provide them with appropriate compensation and start funding sustainable industries to benefit rural communities.
