Since I learned about this cruel slaughter of babies I stopped buying any product coming from Canada and I did not visit Canada again.
I encourage everyone with a heart to do the same until they stop this inhuman practice.

well i hope these canadian politicians who support sealbabymurder get the hint and i really don't understand why the seal shepards are afraid not to get enough signitures of the canadian public as the are millions of people, goverments and countries, all over the world who are against seal killing. is the canadian public not afraid that all of their fishing products are boycotted from millions of people all over the world??? isn't the canadian public ashamed if anybody outside of canada hears of canada and thinks of babykillers??? i think this is a disgusting shame for a country and if i were canadian i wouldn't want that shame and i wouldn't vote for politicians who support sealmurder either, they are a shame for canada too!!!

Although I could not sign your petition Sunshine Ray, I have been signing many others trying to stop this shocking depravity. Will we ever win for the seals? I do not buy Canadian goods, nor will I step foot in the country until this barbaric slaughter stops. Italy should be commented for stopping inport of the 'product'. Pity the rest of the world hasn't the same sense of honour.

Until Canada has finally stopped disrespecting, abusing, and murdering animals, I will not visit them or buy any of their products.

It's unacceptable to kill animals when it's not out of desperation to survive, and it's appalling when they're killed just for some grotesque, twisted idea of what's fashionable.

Noted today and signed quite some time ago.
Good for you, Italy by denoucing Seal Hunting, you have set the way for other countries to denounce Seal Hunting. I, for one will never visit Canada nor support them is any way by buying their products.
This barbaric act of cruelty must be stopped.

Don't support them or buy any product, but not to visit our country just because the government is stupid, insensitive and idiotic is plain dumb there are more things about Canada than just the Seal Hunt, and you'll miss out on the beauty of the scenery, as well as other things that are just too much for words. "THE BARBERIC ACT OF CRUELTY MUST BE STOPPED" YES but you still must see the beauty of Canada and it's people. Its just like me saying I'm not going to the US because I do not beleive inl the fur trade, dumb, then I can't see the beauty that, which is the US, just because of one crazy idea. We must lean but we must keep ourselves OPEN to learn.

As a supporter of LAV, this is a nice step forward. But there is still a long way to go!
By the way, I love Canada, and that is why I care!
