While Sarah Palin’s out there encouraging everyone to shoot em up, it’s nice to see that some elected officials are trying to make the world a more peaceful place.
Canadian Senator Mac Harb introduced a bill on Tuesday to ban Canada’s Seal Hunt, which is responsible for the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of baby harp seals a year.
Oh but guess what? Harb failed to find even one other senator who was willing to support it. Are you kidding me? SERIOUSLY? Are you frigin kidding me here?
Earlier this year, Ecorazzi spotlighted A Sealed Fate — Nigel Barker’s film detailing the brutal seal hunt that takes place each year in Canada. Nigel is a spokesperson for the Humane Society of the United States and has worked tirelessly with their dedicated team to help end this magnificently awful trade.
Senator Harb’s bill was the first time that a Canadian politician has proposed banning the seal slaughter and was inspired by a pending EU ban on the importation and sale of most seal products.
