- Keith Ashfield, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Canada
As usual the Canadian government is using the seals as a political ruse to satisfy the sealers and they say the seal cull is based on science (contained in some private 'committee report'). This is nonsense and the government and the DFO knows it. The seal cull would cost 35 million and would be the worst thing for Canada.
It would be a national embarrassment, a purely political exercise and an environmental disaster; it would likely also be an economic disaster, damaging any potential tourism to the region, as no one wants to visit an open air slaughterhouse.
This slaughter needs to stop and the government needs to know that Canadians will not tolerate such action against the seals.
Please sign this petition and let the fisheries minister and the DFO know that there will be serious consequences for this seal cull if it were to go though. The time to end to this is now.
