    Well I am from Canada and completely disagree with the seal slaughter of course. I have written to gov’t to try to put an end to it. I don’t agree with a couple of comments saying they are boycotting Canadian products and that people should not visit Canada and that they hate Canada. Yes the Seal slaughter is disgusting and should be stopped but how does hurting small business owners, etc help that situation? There is a ridiculous amount of animal cruelty in the U.S- should everyone boycott America? Should I only buy Canadian products until Americans close down all Sea worlds?? This isn’t about Canadian citizens. I am sure there are many of us writing to gov’t daily to put an end to this but when you have someone like Harper who sent his family Christmas photo of his family outside his huge house covered in a fur blanket and wearing a fur hat to Toronto citizens you can see how difficult changing their minds might be. :(

    I have been boycotting everything Canadian since the 70’s when I first
    Became aware of this horror. I write letters to the Canadian legislators
    Every time, nothing stops the slaughter! But I won’t give up until this
    Inhumanity stops.

    This is disgusting. How can a human do this to an animal like that. This will never stop because it makes money. Nobody cares about anything but money.

    When People tell me they do not see why I am so for helping animals or how they buy things like fur, I tell them what if you were born a little seal, a puppy at a mill, or even a frog that gets tested on, dissected. Wouldn’t you want someone to say this isn’t right? To help you?
    We are lucky to have the things we do! so why not put efforts to helping things such as animals that can’t help themselves?

    This is deeply disstressing for me and I imagine it is much more depressing for these defenceless seals. I would give anything for the killing of seals to be banned worldwide! It makes me angry and sick to my stomach how Canada is letting this happen! I’ve never been so heartbroken in all my life until ‘seal slaugher campaign’ came to my attention! After intense research I am fighting with P.E.T.A to stop this! Such a cruel, cruel world. Words cannot describe the misery killing seals brings!

    This is so sick……my friend sent me a video of a seal slaughter and I had to go throw up because I was so horrified. This is disgusting, cruel and terrifying. The poor seals that never get a chance to live past their first birthday? Those hunters should be put through wheat they do to those seals. How can they sleep at night??

    It really sickens me to know what me do to animals, being just 13 my parents think I’m to young to understand why people do this and to help but I’m gonna help all I can, I really want to write a book on this called Walking on Thin Ice. I think it will be a golden opportunity for me to get my work and and help a cause that I am willing to fight for!! I just think of baby’s and can’t help looking into the lost eyes of those seals, I feel so bad for them, I would die to save them!

    Animals should be allowed to live a free life. Not be killed because a human says we need part of it. Who are we to do that? Leave them alone!

    I am constantly amazed that Canada still allows this brutality and slaughter to continue. They know the world is disgusted at this activity and trade. It’s the 21stC we are all supposed to be more educated and enlightened. Let’s hope the ban on all seal products really takes hold and they are forced to discontinue this outrageous behaviour.

    It’s hard to have any respect for a nation or people that allow this outdated barbaric behaviour to just keep on keeping on.

    Come On Canada. Wake up. The world needs you. Get over it and move on.!

    Watch your back people. It has been proven that killers especially serial killers that torture and murder people first impose them on animals. These hunters are psychologically impaired and need professiona help. These that club,skin alive then murder these baby seals often in front of their mothers are demented, unconsciousable,non-remorseful, uncompassionate human beings of the lowest order. I urge every person that has a heart of pity and compassion to exemplify your love for these creatures by contacting the canadian government by voicing your outrage. Secondly, boycott all canadian products and vacations. Thirdly, support animal protection organizations.

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
