START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Apr 14, 2006

I recently received a reply from David Sweet, Conservative, M.P., Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale.

In his letter, Mr. Sweet advised me that a 2006-2010 Atlantic Seal Management Plan had been announced March 15/06, the Total Allowable Catch for 2006 is 325,000, and subsequent years will be consistent with levels set in recent years.

Mr. Sweet also says that 98% of the seals are killed in an acceptably humane manner, as reported by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) and the International Fund for Animal Welfare,(IFAW).  This means that more than 6,000 seals were slaughted in an unacceptable, inhumane manner in accordance with the CVMA and the IFAW.

Please write to Mr. Sweet and tell him that more acceptable methods have to be found if this massacre is to continue to ensure that all seals are killed humanely.

Please also write the Prime Minister Harper at asking him the same thing, and to outlaw this massacre.

It is not acceptable to torture 2% of prisoners.  It is not acceptable to torture murders and rapists.  It is not acceptable to torture terrorists.  Why is it acceptable to torture over 6,000 baby seals annually?
