Following
a meeting with PETA just weeks ago, Canadian Sen. Mac Harb introduced historic legislation
today to end Canada’s seal
slaughter
, stating that the “end of the commercial
sealing industry is now inevitable.” Sen. Larry Campbell seconded the
motion, and it received an overwhelmingly positive response from other senators
who want to see it debated.

Sen. Harb’s bill comes on the heels of Russia’s
decision to ban seal-fur imports—a move that came after Pamela Anderson led an
international appeal on PETA’s behalf. Russia (which had been importing 95
percent of Canadian seal pelts), the U.S., E.U. countries, and many other nations
have banned seal-product imports following years of intensive international
campaigns by PETA and our affiliates.

Celebrities
such as Pamela Anderson,
Pink,
Olivia Munn,
Russell Simmons,
Tommy Lee, Alicia Silverstone, Dave Navarro,
Joanna Krupa, and many others have
set the Twitterverse on fire by pushing PETA’s action alert calling on support
for the historic bill.

We
have an opportunity to end the barbaric annual bludgeoning and shooting of baby harp seals for
good, and we cannot let it
pass us by.

If
you are Canadian
, contact
your senator
