The concept of a federal buyout is simple: rather than wasting tax money on a hunt with no market, the Canadian government can actually save money by offering to pay sealers a fair dollar amount to give up their license to kill.

The slaughter has gone on far too long. The indigenous peoples of northern Canada should be allowed to continue hunting seals etc as they are vital for the people. But the "canned" slaughter by people who do not hunt for their own use, but slaughter for profit is unnecessary and criminal.

As the old saw goes, honey catches more flies than vinegar. If we have to grease their bloody paws to save seals' lives, so be it.

When will the Canadian Government get the message that their behavior is unacceptable and stop this completely unnecessary slaughter. They are harming the international reputation of their country.
However I think the idea promoted here is a good one.

Action completed. Something needs to be done now....the killing of these innocent baby seals has gone on forever.....if you have to pay these guys to give up their murder license in order to end this senseless slaughter.....so be it........how in the world can these people who slaughter the innocent live with themselves? I just cannot comprehend it. Thanks Cal for sharing.
