EU Isn’t Falling for Canada’s Latest Ruse

Canada’s barbaric seal slaughter continues its downward spiral – and it appears to be taking Canada’s integrity with it.

Last week, the European Union (EU) rejected an attempt by the native Canadian Inuit to challenge the EU’s ban on seal products.  Interestingly, the Inuit live far away from the area where the mass commercial slaughter takes place and are responsible for only about 3 percent of Canada’s annual seal kill. In addition, the EU already exempts Inuit seal products from the ban.

So why would the Inuit fight a ban that doesn’t even apply to them? We’re not saying that Canada is desperately exploiting native peoples to try to keep the dying seal slaughter going, but if a News Of The World-esque tape surfaces of a shady hotel room dealing, we won’t be surprised.

In the meantime, you can tweet Stephen Harper (@pmharper) and tell him to stop allowing hunters to bash in baby seals’ skulls and skin them alive.
