 PETITION AGAINST THE SLAUGHTER OF SEALS IN CANADA

To: Paul Martin, Prime Minister of Canada, Geoff Regan, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, and to each Member of the Parliament of Canada :

We the undersigned, are totally opposed to the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of seals which is permitted and supported by the Canadian government, and is unwillingly subsidized by Canadian taxpayers.

This is the largest slaughter of marine mammals in the world and is a threat to the survival of the entire species. It jeopardizes the North Atlantic ecosystem including mammals, many species of fish and crustacea.

The slaughter is unnecessary. Scientific evidence shows that it was overfishing which destroyed the stocks of cod and other fish and there is no solid evidence that exterminating seals will help the cod population recover. The slaughter produces only unessential, luxury, and vanity items and a small amount of meat, which is generally considered to be foul and unfit for human consumption.

About 95% of the seals to be slaughtered are babies only a few weeks old. Many are cruelly struck on the head with picks or shot with rifles in front of their mothers. A postmortem survey has shown that up to 42% of these babies are skinned alive.

Killing hundreds of thousands of living beings is immoral and unethical. The way they are killed is incredibly cruel and barbaric.

We will boycott all Canadian seafood, all other Canadian products, and will not travel to Canada either for tourism or education until the slaughter of seals is permanently ended. We will look at all labels to ensure that nothing we buy is from Canada and we will encourage our family and friends to do the same.

We petition you to halt this slaughter immediately and permanently.
