In Newfoundland every year, tons of seals are bludgeoned to death during the annual seal hunt.
Pretty much everyone ever wants the hunt to end, except Canadian law makers, who go to extremes to find someone to buy the pelts even though almost no one wants them and they're not allowed in US borders.
A member of the Canadian parliament said:
"Part of our history is also whaling, for example, and the day came when the whaling industry stopped.
Now, is that day coming with the seal hunt? It just may be."
He's only wondering aloud if murdering baby seals for their fur is wrong.
He's not even outright coming out against it and he's still under heavy fire from the evil seal hunters and horrible politicians who are vested in the seal hunt.
Ever since Russia (the biggest buyer of seal skins) closed its borders to seal fur, Canada has begun rethinking its stance on the hunt.
The parliament member said:
"We cannot hide behind the debate and pretend that the market for seals is not in trouble. Facing this reality head on is the only way to address this situation."
That market only made 1 million dollars last year. That's not even a drop in the bucket.
And they had to murder baby seals to make that meager amount.
It's no industry; it's just sad, backward and cruel.
C'mon Canada, end the seal hunt!
