Translation....

March 7, 2013, Member of the CITES (Convention on international trade in endangered species of wild flora and fauna) have decided to reject a crucial proposal for the future of the polar bear. This proposal was designed to include this species in Appendix I. A measure that would have resulted as the prohibition of trade in parts and derivatives of polar bears. After climate change, hunting is the main threat that weighs on polar bears. Each polar bear account. We, citizens of the world are outraged that hunting of this animal in danger is permitted to non-resident hunters. Polar bear hunting is permitted with a system of quotas for each inuit village in the Canada. But Aboriginal hunters are allowed to assign a certain number of permits to non-resident hunters. We therefore call on Canada to abandon the international trade of polar bear: its parts or derivatives; and ban hunting hunters tourists.

Such vile, cruel treatment of animals is a sin against nature. Hundreds of years ago some people believed that animal parts could do wonderful life enhanching things for them. Since then Some people have evolved and now have sientifically proven that almostall of these archaic beliefes are false.

Signed #1836. I suspect that part of the problem is that the Federal Government included certain hunting rights into the land claims agreements when it settled the land claims of aboriginal peoples. Those agreements are now law. To undue the rights that were given, the aboriginal signatories would have to be willing to renegotiate portions of their settlements and I have a strong feeling they will not willingly do that.

Thank you Cher for this petition. The shameful behaviour of Canada and the other countries who voted with them AND WWF who also supported Canada makes this necessary. DENMARK caused the EU to vote en bloc against the proposal. Shame on them too and on the EU law which allows one country to dominate the vote. There is something intrinsically wrong with a Cites system which allows this to happen in 2013.

I have written personally on this subject sending to Peter Kent, my MP Keddy. They are blind. They say it is sustainable hunting for in INUITS! That the trade in polar bear parts is not what is going to make the polar bear endangered...it is global warming. I disagree with them. I feel no one should be allowed to hunt the great white bear for any reason. Please keep on sending emails to Mr. Harper and Peter Kent. The worse of the hunt is happening in Quebec...over 600 bears just in Quebec were killed last year!

As long as Canada continues to kill Polar Bears and seals they will not get any of my money. Those cookies, fish and other goods on grocery shelves will not be purchased by me. If we all boycott Canadian goods, and tell them why, maybe they will start to think and find some compassion.
