Who will feed the children?



Every year there is a "witch hunt" to put an end to the Atlantic seal hunt.  Most of these protesters go by hearsay or watch one video, and jump on the bandwagon without ever doing any research of their own.  As in every thing, there is two sides to the seal hunt issue. 

For anyone interested in making an informed decision, this link is to an article on the CBC website which takes a look at both sides. 

http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/sealhunt/


I cannot think of the seal hunt without thinking of Heather Mills McCarthy saying with derision that to kill seals for an extra $10,000 a year was disgraceful because $10,000 was nothing.  To her, with her $10,000 handbags, of course it's nothing but to these families $10,000 can mean enough to feed their children through the winter.  It can put winter boots on their children's feet to prevent them from getting frostbite.  Ten thousand dollars to some families, makes a hugh difference.  If you take $10,000 away from these families, who will feed the children?

I'm not in favor of seals being clubbed to death any more than I am of the way animals are slaughtered to provide the world's population with a source of food, but we need to consider the reasons these things are done and find other ways to fulfill what these activities give us (Money to support families, meat to feed people, whatever it might be).  Protesting accomplishes little unless we can set forth positives ways to ensure everyone's needs are met.
