Some progress. Now what about Norway, Russia, and Namibia?

This article states that: (The Canadian) "provincial government provided a 3.6 million dollar loan to the Canadian seal processing industry, “in order to protect the future viability of the province’s seal hunt,” Canadian Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture, Darin King, announced."

Hopefully it is finally dead in Canada, but I'm not sure if it is yet.
