Support Sen. Harb’s Bill to End Canada’s Seal Slaughter

Following a meeting with PETA some weeks back, Canadian Sen. Mac Harb has introduced a historic
bill to end Canada’s annual commercial slaughter of baby seals. This piece of
legislation acknowledges that there are no markets for seal pelts now that
Russia—which had been importing 95 percent of Canadian seal fur—has joined the
U.S., the European Union, Mexico, and others in banning seal fur imports.
Despite a lack of markets, the Canadian government continues to support the slaughter
because both liberals and conservatives want to control the swing seats in the
region where the slaughter takes place. Sen. Harb’s bill calls for the
government to end the slaughter and transition Canadians in sealing regions
into sustainable economic programs.

nearing the end of the seal slaughter, but we need your voice now to reach a
tipping point.
Please write a polite letter to Canadian senators
and ask them to support Sen. Harb’s bill, which, if passed, would put an end to the
massacre once and for all.
