Um... seal clubbing?
That's the Inuit PETA, a VERY small group in the north, not "all" of Canada.
(In Canada the name for Eskimos is Inuit.)
The Inuit are nomadic, they're not just in Canada, they're also in Greenland.
You'll find these people in the upper islands and regions of Nunavut, and Greenland. I believe they used to have settlements in Alaska... and also
A: We don't intrude on their traditional hunting rights, because we don't intrude on the customs of other cultures... especially the ones who's
land we now own.
B: How in heck could we enforce a no seal hunting policy on these tribes even if we wanted to? They're in the upper northern regions... they're
adapted to that climate.
Most vehicles can't even survive that climate, and people expect us to patrol it?
For what... natives carrying sticks?
There are an estimated 150,000 Inuit in Canada.
Most of which aren't even traditional anymore and don't participate in seal hunts.
There are over 33 Million people in Canada.
... all of Canada?
If they want to go up there and freeze to death trying to find natives with sticks, by all means.
All of Canada... yeah sure... we all go on vacation to -50C climates because we really enjoy hitting seals with sticks... (sarcasm).
