"And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor political, nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him that it is right "-- Martin Luther King Jr --
C'mon Canada, lets stand together!!
Write to the Prime Minister and to the Minister of Fisheries to Stop the Seal Hunt!!!
Copy and paste this letter then 'snail mail' it to the addresses below(emails do not work as well as posted mail):
The Right Honourable Stephen Joseph Harper
Prime Minister Office of the Prime Minister

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada K1A 0A2
The Honorable Loyola Hearn, P.C., M.P.
House of Commons Minister, Fisheries and Oceans
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6
Please make Canada a beacon of a humane society. Canadian leaders should help Newfoundlanders, but supporting Newfoundlanders doesn’t have to mean supporting the seal market. Overall, the seal slaughter costs Canada more than it earns, through subsidies and Coast Guard ships and ice breakers – and loss of global good will.
I speak for millions of people world wide when I say that the world is watching you very closely. The seal hunt must be banned immediately. You have been presented with countless petitions signed the world over, representing a loss if respect for Canada and a willingness to Boycott Canada's goods should you choose to move forward with the hunt.
You've received scientific studies and reports that clearly indicate that the Harp seal population has been threatened by the hunts for years, to the point of near endangerment. Therefore a continuation of this hunt would clearly represent your disrespect for environment welfare. You have also received reports from credentialed authorities which prove that ending the hunt will not cause financial hardship to those involved.
Lastly, please consider the brutality involved and how your endorsement for this heighten level of violence would very well be seen as a huge mistake. The abolishment of animal cruelty should be a mainstream focus with regard to the association between crimes against animals and crimes against people. This is a disgrace for the Image of Canada.
Please, we urge you to end the seal hunt now.

"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing."

Martin Luther King, Jr. put it another way:
"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."
"If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task
they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent
and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings."

"The animals of the world exist for thier own reasons.
They were not made for humans any more than black people
were made for whites or women created for men."
'Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They are not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do!!"

|Wild Fact About Me
||'THE WORLD CAN ONLY CHANGE FROM WITHIN'--Eckhart Tolle
|What Gives Me Hope
||relentless effort. "If ppl can see it with their own eyes they can be persuaded & compelled to act. It's about consumer change. It's about corporate change. It's about policy change."
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||abolish large factory farming where only profits matter with no animal welfare NOR ppl in their agenda. I would not allow mega farms to exist. Instead of having hundreds of thousands of animals crammed up in huge sheds & small cages, I'd have small farms,where farmers would care for their crop & animals.(wishful thinking!)
I would change animal welfare laws to consider stiff fines & jail terms for anyone caught abusing.
Abolish puppy mills.
I would make these 5 fundamental freedoms for animals mandatory:
1.Freedom from hunger and thirst: By access to fresh water & food.
2.Freedom from discomfort: By providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
3.Freedom from pain, injury & disease: By rapid diagnosis and treatment.
4.Freedom to express normal behavior: By providing sufficient SPACE, proper facilities and company of the animal's own kind.
5.Freedom from fear and distress: By ensuring conditions and treatments which avoid mental suffering.
So,the overwhelming problems with this type of "farming" is the abysmal living conditions of all of the animals involved in this mass production of inferior food stuffs for overfed, obese humans who ingest vastly too much animal protein and animal fats. ALL factory farmed animals are cruelly abused - if not outright tortured! The slaughtering aspects of the whole production line is sheer, unremitting horror. Watch some of the footage from abbatoirs available on YouTube, among other web sites, and you will see what is involved!
IF WE HAD WOMEN RUNNING THIS WORLD,IT WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE!!
and IF WE WOULD ALL BE VEGETARIANS, IT WOULD BE PARADISE!
