Canada's 2008 annual commercial seal hunt
in the Gulf of St Lawrence and around Newfoundland, Quebec and Nova Scotia began on March 28. The hunting season lasts from mid-November to mid-May, but the hunt mainly occurs in March and April. Canada's seal hunt is the world's largest hunt for marine mammals. It is cruel and that it ravages the seal population.

          Most of the seals that are hunted, are young harp seals, called beaters.. They were whelped (born) in February or early March in whelping patches on the ice. Such patches vary from 20 to 200 square kilometres, and may contain as many as 2,000 adult females per square kilometre. The pups are abandoned by their mothers at two weeks of age, and remain in the whelping patches until the ice starts to melt in March or early April. The hunt takes place in and around these whelping patches.

          The European Union is considering a ban on all seal products. A Canadian delegation headed to Europe in March 2008, to lobby for the hunt. The delegation includes Canadian Fisheries Conservation representative Loyola Sullivan, Nunavut Premier Paul Okalik, Newfoundland Natural Resources Minister Kathy Dunderdale, Fur Institute of Canada executive director Rob Cahill, and sealers Mark Small and Denis Longuepee. The delegation travels to London, Brussels, Berlin, Vienna and Paris.

(As the 08' seal hunt is already taken its toll on the seal community, this petition will be provided in hopes of stopping the 09' and future seal hunts in Canada. Every opinion-comment-and signature is MUCH appreciated, and will provide the Canadian government with insight into how this mass slaughter not only affects Canadians--but the people of the world and their view of Canada. Signing this petition helps restore the peace-peace of our so loved 'Peace Keeping nation of Canada.' 
Sealing in this commercial proportion is not a necessity to the Inuit peoples of Canada...this petition not only encourages the Canadian government to put an end to this--but also to increase employment opportunity to those that feel they must rely on sealing to provide an income.)
