Victory for seals!
On 5th May 2009, Members of the European Parliament voted overwhelmingly in support of a European Union ban on trade in seal products. This vote closes EU borders to products of cruel commercial seal slaughters, removing a primary market for Canada’s globally-condemned sealing industry. Though there is still much to be done, many believe this ban will deliver a blow from which the Canadian seal slaughter may not recover.
We are grateful to the European Union for rejecting cruelty, and grateful to everyone who worked so very hard to make this possible. The seals could not ask for stronger allies.
