but most importantly please boycott all Canadian seafood, including Red Lobster. it's the Canadian fishing industry and Canadian fishermen's unions who support sealing.

January 12, 2011 Canadian Fisheries Minister Gail Shea and Labrador Fisheries Minister Clyde Jackman announced that China has agreed to buy seal meat and seal oil from Canada.

Shea: "They don't get a lot of return from the sale of meat and oil, but what we are hoping to do because China is such a large market is work with our industry to support them in developing new products … so there is a lot of optimism in the industry today."

Magdalen Islands Sealers' Association head Denis Longuépée: "With this signing this morning, we're happy that countries like China decided not to follow those other countries, and sign with Canada. The population is so high in China that if everybody buys some pelt or product from seal, we won't have to trade anymore with Europe. So it's good news for us.”

Shea said the deal between Canada and China will be signed (that following) Thursday.

Harper has kept Canada looking like murders for years now even offering seal meat in Parliament. The few bloody jobs it does provide do not make the hunt any more acceptable which other parties would leave to believe. End the hunt offer retraining for all involved from the drunken sealer clubbing pups to those in it's disgusting factories.

Olive Tassell (7)

I live in Canada, but think the world should ban Canadian products in response to the government quota. The sea ice is melting rapidly and the numbers of seals is declining. Canada and Harper deserve a swift kick in the rear, hopefully a change in government anything would be an improvement.

People have signed on this issue for a long, long time. WHY, with all the healthy opposition against this evil, hasn't something been DONE by now? Is signing on it not having an effect? What will it take to bring this issue to task? How can one stupid, stubborn Canadian Prime Minister turn his back on the outcries of the world's people against such despicable slaughter?

Canada and China, a marriage made in hell. Both countries carrying out sadistic, barbaric bloodbaths to satisfy man's greed; Canada the seals and as for China, well anything that moves and breathes literally is fair game for them to slaughter. Shame on both countries that obviously have no compassion, ethics, morals or empathy.

It is pathetic that the Canadian people do not stand against this brutality. Their lack of empathy is apauling. I have signed soo many petitions and they seem to be in vein because the powers that be as well as the citizens that reside in this country do nothing to get this stopped. Steven Harper has surpassed the point of being human. He is the lowest and poorest excuse of a political official. It has been said that the wheels of justice turn slowly in Canada because they don't like change. Well the wheels of justice have stopped for the seal. Until the canadian people take their heads out of their asses as demand Harper to stop this horrible cruelty nothing will ever change. Be a man, Harper, and stop this. And stand up for what is right you unempathetic Canadian jerks. You can get this stopped if you took a stand against this worthless cruelty. I refuse to buy anything Canadian produced. Why support a country that doesn't have a spine and will not stand up for what is right.

As long as I am still breathing, I will do everything in my power to put an end to cruelty, abuse, slaughtering innocents, animal holocausts, factory farming and the bludgeoning to death of millions of these precious and sentient creatures. I wonder if these murderers are haunted by the screams of mommas trying to protect their babies? I wonder how they can look into those sweet, brown eyes while raising their hakapicks meant to crack skulls? Does the once pristine white snow, now stained red bother them at all? GOD DAMNIT, LEAVE YOUR HANDS OFF THOSE INNOCENT CREATURES!!! I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT YOU WILL ONE DAY KNOW THE PAIN AND SUFFERING YOU HAVE CAUSED!
