Canada, Don’t Sell Seals to China

NHES is distressed that despite worldwide protest and lack of demand, thousands of Canadian seals are still brutally killed each year. In 2009, the European Union voted to no longer sell seal products and the United States called for the immediate end to seal slaughter in Canada. However, instead of listening to the demands of Europe and the United States, Canada has chosen to continue this slaughter and instead market seal goods to China. As Europeans and Americans educated themselves on seal slaughter, many Chinese have as well and may indeed protest this decision. Please send the prime minister of Canada a polite note letting him know you disapprove of Canada’s decision to sell seal products to China.
