Canadians love to thumb their collective noses at the U.S. and remind us all how much more enlightened they all are.

Might I also add that if the Seal hunt did not happen they would eat up alot of fish and depleat already overstressed stocks. I agree the cruelty has to stop, but really how can we police the entire hunt? We are a small nation with limited resources. We cannot be expected to be there at every kill to make sure it was done humanely.

Stocks are overstressed because the regulations are week in that areas as well. Fishermen are depleting the fish, harvesters are depleting the plankton and algae. There needs to be more stringent government regulation across the board.
I agree, you should just post the article with your opinion on it and not just take a jab in your opening.
