@CPCGailShea and her army of ruthless seal killers have massacred over 51 114 innocent seals since the start of the commercial #Canadian#sealhunt 2014!!
This barbaric industry, a relic from the colonial past, does nothing for the country other than to insult the dignity of its most upstanding citizens.
We question the integrity of the Harper government that allows such savage behaviour to continue and we condemn the manner in which millions of the tax payers revenue is spent in supporting the trade while thousands of Canadian citizens remain dependent on state welfare.
With less than 5 percent of a sealer’s annual income coming from the seal slaughter, we ask you to join us in our support of Humane Society International by signing their petition calling for a federal buyout. http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/seal_hunt/
A federal industry buyout would end the Canadian seal hunt and allow sealers to be compensated for this loss of income—a dollar amount that would actually be cheaper than continuing to prop up the dying seal industry each year.
@CPCGailShea No one buys the instant death with a bullet to the head of 27.712 seals. Stop the #sealhunt for fur

STOP #Sealhunt in #Canada !! He is only weeks old, and soon he will be ready to take his first journey into the sea. The fluffy white coat that once protected him from the cold has all but disappeared, his darker and sleeker body now visible against the white snow. Exposed and vulnerable, he lays helpless and looks up at the man with the rifle.
The Canadian seal hunting season has begun. Over the coming months, hundreds of thousands of seal pups will be brutally slaughtered. They are still only babies – and they are killed for one reason only: their pelts.
Join the international outcry for these beautiful animals, who are bashed, shot – and sometimes skinned alive – for the sake of money and some people’s warped idea of ‘fashion’.
