Write Letters to Politicians and Businesses that Can End the Seal Hunt

Harpseals.org provides contact information and automated emails for Canadian politicians and agencies as well as for businesses that are involved in the seal hunt or that can end the seal hunt.

Supermarkets and restaurants that we list here sell Canadian seafood. Help us urge them to join the boycott of Canadian seafood.

Let the Canadian tourist agencies and businesses know that you will not visit Canada or patronize their business until the seal hunt ends. Therefore we hope that they will pressure their representatives to ban the seal hunt.

We also list the fashion houses that have used seal fur in their designs. Please let them know that you will not buy any of their products if they use seal fur in their collections.

Please Note: Emails and contact information can change. If your email bounces back due to an incorrect email address, please let us know. Please also check the web sites that we list to see if new contact information is provided there.

John Efford - Former Canadian Fisheries Minister"Mr. Speaker, I would like to see the six million, or whatever number is out there, killed or sold, or destroyed or burned. I do not care what happens to them.

The fact is that the markets are not there to sell more seals. What they (the fishermen) wanted was to have the right to go out and kill the seals. They have that right, and the more they kill the better I will love it."

- John Efford, former Minister of Natural Resources and MInister of Fisheries and Oceans

Tourism Agencies and Businesses

In addition to boycotting seafood, we urge you to avoid travel and tourism in Canada - and tell the government and tourist-related agencies and businesses about it.

Canadian Tourism CommissionCanadian Tourism Commission

The Canadian Tourism Commission's (CTC's) business is to promote tourism to Canada. It is government-sponsored and corporate-fed. Most noteable is its motto- "Discover our True Nature".... So, Harpseals.org suggests you do just that! Tell them you're not going to travel to or buy Canadian products as long as the senseless slaughter of seals continues.

Mailing address: Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC), Suite 1400, Four Bentall Centre, 1055 Dunsmuir St./Box 49230, Vancouver, BC V7X 1L2, Canada

Telephone: 604.638.8300

U.S. Leisure Marketing Department of the Canadian Tourism Commission

The U.S. Leisure Marketing Department states, "the CTC's marketing staff works with partners to position Canada as the premier destination of choice for U.S. travellers. Our aim is to encourage repeat visitation and to jumpstart word-of-mouth publicity." The U.S. is the second-largest source for travel expenditures in Canada and Canada’s largest single source for international visitors and expenditures.

"By capturing free editorial in U.S. print and electronic media, our team aims to present Canada as a fresh and sparkling destination–a Canada full of compelling experiences. Our aim is to create a buzz and make Canada a “bragging rights” destination with our target audience. Our Canadian partners are crucial to our success in the U.S. market. "

If you see one of the CTC's "free editorial" content in your local paper, please be sure to write a letter to the editor of the paper exposing Canada's "True Nature" - the bloody, cruel seal hunt they want to hide...

Politicians

Besides the fishing industry, is there any one force in Canada that we have to challenge more in order to stop the seal killing than the twisted political system? Canada's annual seal massacre is very political in nature and it's the men and women in office that make the laws and policies that we need to change. Newfoundland has a relatively large number of parliamentary members, and history shows that to be elected to office there, a politician must be in favor of the seal hunt.

 

Keith Hutchings

Fisheries minister for the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. He replaced Derrick Dalley in October 2013, who previously replaced Darin KIng, the man responsible for giving the Norwegian company, Carino, the main seal skin and blubber processor with a plant in Newfoundland, the first $3.6 million loan. This enabled the company to buy all the seal skins in 2012. Derrick Dalley repeated this financial and moral crime in 2012, allowing over 91,000 more seal pups to be killed.

Please also write to the Canadian Senators in protest of their report calling for a cull of 70,000 grey seals in another misguided effort to 'bring back the cod'. Time and time again, Canadian politicians ignore science and attempt to over-simplify ocean ecology to claim that fewer predators/competitors means more fish for Canadian fishermen. A cull of 70,000 grey seals represents the slaughter of 2/3 of the population of this region. Independent scientists and even DFO scientists call this plan folly.

Namibia has authorized the killing of 80,000 - 85,000 Cape fur seal pups and 6,000 adult bulls (for their genitalia) for the past several years. This barbaric massacre is perpetrated for the sake of employing about 100 unskilled workers for a few months and at the behest of the fishing industry (though it is not officially a cull, as that would require scientific evidence of its necessity for protecting fisheries).

WTOAmbassadors to the World Trade Organization (WTO)

The WTO will decide whether the European Union's ban on seal product imports violates free trade agreements. April 29, 2013 is the second hearing. Then deliberations of the WTO panel may take weeks to months before a decision is made. If the WTO does declare the EU import ban a violation of free trade laws or treaties, the European Union may still maintain the ban but pay a penalty.

We have three automated emails for ambassadors to the WTO from the United States, Canada, and Australia. If you are a citizen of one of these countries, please use the appropriate email message and let your representative know that you support the right of the EU to ban seal imports.

If you live in other WTO member states, please send a message to your country's WTO ambassador and/or send a message to your president or prime minister. Don't forget the power of Tweeting, too!

Globe and MailNewspapers

Writing letters to the editors of local, university, and major national newspapers and magazines is an excellent way to spread the word about the seal hunt and the actions people can take to end it. These letters can reach tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of people and provide as much or more information as a TV commercial or print ad. All for free.

Please take any opportunities you find to write these letters. You can write in response to articles on global warming, seals who stray to far away waters, Canadian tourism articles, articles on Canadian seafood or stores and restaurants that sell it, articles on marine mammals, articles on the oceans and over-fishing, etc.

Below is contact information for several Canadian newspapers. Those in Newfoundland will likely read by sealers. For a list of U.S. newspapers, one web site with an apparently thorough list is here.
