Sigh. People get all excited about cute critters like seals and dolphins, but not about ACTUALLY over-exploited, threatened species like tuna or codfish. Because they aren't cute and fuzzy and don't do funny tricks.

I protest by not signing this protest.

lol Exactly, and so many people don't even understand.

Seals are being killed, because it is an industry, they do not kill ALL the seals.

Instead, George W. Bush is slaughtering innocent men in Iraq, for his own personal gains. But obviously those men aren't nearly as adorable as a seal.

A few problems with what they're saying on that petition.

1. The new Prime Minister is far more right wing than our last, if it was up to him anything that could be done for a profit, will be done.

2. Even if he suddenly felt "let's save this animal", we have a minority government, and not a dictatorship- his soul voice means nothing.

3. The majority of ridings that take part in the seal hunts are conservative and liberal, so still... political parties won't be going against the province of NFLD who already feels alienated.

4. THEY ARE ANIMALS. Yes, we want them all to live. However, if you follow the Bible, or even the Torah (maybe others as well), they were made UNDER us to govern them. The Natives use the scraps for meat, and the NFLDers use it for its pelts to sell. Quite frankly, I think humans should be our main concern, but if you'd rather than welfare and safety of animals, maybe you see something I do not.

Don't think that I wanna participate only in this stuff, to support only this kind of animals, because they are cute or somehting. Whoever have problems, people or animals, I am never indifferent and try to support. I just think that in this particular case violence is pointless, it doesn't really do anything good for anyone. People could do without it, easily. Fur is not such an essential in nowadays. That's not like they kill them for food to survive.

How about we call on him to end the ruthless slaughter of 2/3rds out-of-the womb 9 month old infants first?

People are willing to buy the pelts at outrageous prices. Don't say it's not essential, because you DO NOT LIVE IN NEWFOUNDLAND OR LABRADOR! If you lived there, worked as a seal harvester and said it was not essential, then I'd say well, I guess for him it's not necessary. But for the thousands that need this as their soul source of income, it's necessary. Think of the people, PLEASE!
