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

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 Canadian Minister of Natural Resources and MInister of Fisheries and Oceans

Harpseals.org provides contact information and automated emails for Canadian and Namibian politicians, government agencies, and companies that are involved in killing seals or that can help 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. We hope that tourist companies will pressure their government 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.

Canadian Members of Parliament

Canada parliamentCanadians, Please write to your MP to express your disapproval of the seal "hunt" and of bill S-208, National Seal Products Day Act.

Almost all MP's supported this bill in its initial readings. Your MP's need to hear from you, their constituents, that you oppose the designation of a special day to commemorate sealing and that you want them to ban the commercial seal "hunt."

You can find your MP's email and mailing addresses at the parliament website.

If you want a starting point for your letter or you just want to copy a sample letter, you can copy the text of the email to the leaders of the government.

 


 

Quebec Provincial Government

QuebecThe Quebec province has awarded over CAN$72,000 to a pathologist for a grey seal slaughter as a project to help sealers develop a market for grey seal products.

Initially billed as a cull for scientific research, the architect of this slaughter, University of Prince Edward Island veterinary pathologist Pierre-Yves Daoust, soon admitted that the purpose is to help sealers in the Magdalen Islands develop a market for grey seal products.

These sealers have not been able to kill harp seals in recent years due to climate change, which has resulted in worse and worse ice conditions. These poor ice conditions result in the drowning deaths of newborn seal pups, the same seal pups that the Magdalen Islands sealers want to kill once the government allows them (which is when they begin to molt at about 3 weeks of age).

Namibian Politicians / Government Officials

 

Namibia flagNamibian Prime Minister and Other Officials

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). Write to the President and other Namibian officials to demand an end to this slaughter. Read more about it here.

Please also write to the Namibian SPCA to urge them to lend their support to the campaign to end the Cape fur seal massacre.

Chinese Government Officials

 

China flagOfficials of the Government of China (People's Republic of China - PRC)

China is a major importer (if not the main importer) of seal oil from the Cape fur seal massacre in Namibia. Chinese companies process the seal oil into 'health food' supplements and ship them around the world, including to countries where these products are banned.

Canada's government and sealing interests are also working hard to build trade with China in seal skins and other seal products.

Please write to Chinese officials to ask them to ban seal product imports.

Red LobsterGrocers and Restaurants that Sell Canadian Seafood

Off-season Canadian fishermen are the people who kill defenseless seals in Canada's infamous seal "hunt". When stores and restaurants sell seafood caught by these fishermen, they support sealers and sealing. Since Canada's fishing industry as a whole supports and lobbies for sealing, by selling Canadian seafood, stores and restaurants indirectly support sealing.

Red Lobster was named the largest importer of Canadian seafood some years ago. We do not have current data, however, this company was always very resistant to joining the Canadian seafood boycott. It is now owned by Golden Gate Capital. We can now try again with renewed vigor to convince this company to join the Canadian seafood boycott.

Please click on the link below to send emails to companies that sell Canadian seafood.

ACTPAtlantic Canada Tourism Partnership

"The Atlantic Canada Tourism Partnership (ACTP) brings together the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), the provincial departments responsible for tourism in New Brunswick , Newfoundland and Labrador , Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and the four provincial tourism industry associations.

ACTP’s mission is simple – grow the tourism industry in Atlantic Canada, which today represents $4.69 billion annually for the region’s economy and employs over 110,000 people. ACTP expands the industry through two research-driven marketing campaigns, one promoting the Atlantic Canadian provinces in the United States and a second in key overseas markets. In both programs, ACTP markets Atlantic Canada with major consumer advertising campaigns, travel trade programs and media relations activities.

ACTP delivers strong results. The initiative generated $164.4 million in tourism revenue for Atlantic Canada during its 2012 – 2015 Agreement. That represents a return of $13.55 for every dollar invested in its marketing campaigns. Thanks to ACTP, more visitors from the United States and around the world are discovering Atlantic Canada’s charms."
