Terminate the Canadian Seal Massacre
Easter fun for saving seals and bashing the hunt

Fellow activists:

Here is a suggestion for some Easter cheer.

My dear friend Sue Hirsch received an unsolicited email from one Charles Randolph (teeri1@aol.com), a pro-sealing Canadian. Being too upset for words, Sue asked her friends to respond to Mr. Randolph on her behalf. Here is my contribution. I'm writing to ask you all to give him a piece of your mind, since the main point he was trying to make was that regarding the Canadian seal hunt, non-Canadians should bloody well mind their own business.

I'm actually breaking my own rule of not stooping down to their level and communicating with them directly, but since he exposed himself so invitingly, I just couldn't resist.

Please CC a copy of your email to Sue (ssforever@earthlink.net). That will make her Easter.

Susan,

A friend of mine forwarded an email you sent asking someone to stop buying Canadian Seafood to stop the seal hunt. I for one am all for the seal hunt. They have great skins that are very useful and beautifull.

A friend of mine forwarded your email for me to respond to. I would be happy to contribute my opinion. Nothing personal, but first of all, may I ask you whether you are bald, and if not, whether you hair is blonde, in which case may I have your scalp? I just loooove blondes.

I love nature

I love nature too, and seals are a part of nature. But I think we have different definitions of "love". When I love something, I want to protect it. Apparently, when you love something, you want to kill it.

To be generous, I'll say that you don't really want to kill it. You just want to rob it of its beauty to enhance your own image with a fur coat. And, yeah, well, if it can't live without its skin, too bad, eh?

You may as well take its penis too while you're at it, since your "wise use" would require you to use everything.

and think we should utilize and enjoy its beauty, while responsibly managing the resource.

Lots of nice words here, but from somebody like you, they mean "and think we should rape it, while leaving a few to rape next year".

From what I have learned, the Canadian seal hunters have been doing this for a long time and there are still lots of seals, so I think they are doing fine and should be allowed to continue their artesenal hunting practices without interference from outsiders.

From what I have learned, the seals have never been mass slaughtered before the seal hunters arrived from Europe and became Canadian. Up to that time, both the cod and the seals were doing just fine, thank you very much.

Also, "a long time" does not include now. Now is a new era - of global warming. Your rules no longer apply.

Speaking of global warming, it is estimated that some 250,000 baby seals have drowned in the Southern Gulf of St. Lawrence, and Canada still uncharitably adds 270,000 to the tally, adding up to 520,000 in total seal fatality, and this is assuming that there is no overkill as oft-repeated in pervious years. Some "responsible management", if you ask me.

By the way, I am not an "outsider". I am as Canadian as you.

Another thought is why penalize Canadian fishermen? What do they have to do with seal hunting?

Another thought is why penalize the seals? What do they have to do with fishermen decimating the cod stock by overfishing resulting from irresponsible management?

You want to take away their livlihood...

You want to take away their lives...

when they have no imnpact on seal hunters thousands of miles away. Wow, you are really reaching for straws and being rather irresponsible in the proocess. Why not boycott all Canadian goods if you want to pressure the gevernment?

Thank you for the great idea. Finally we agree on something. I will ask the "outsiders" everywhere to boycott all Canadian goods then. Thanks again!

Is that because you believe everything you read from sources you trust. I like to learn both sides of a story before forming my opinions, and I have in this case. I think you are irresponisble and nosing into others affairs that don't concern you.

Something so hideous and uncivilized concerns everyone on Earth and even Martians. Natural law says that the seals do not belong to Canada. If Canada wants to claim something, it should be the responsibility to safeguard them, not to skin them alive, and to profit from their penises. Shame on Canada for such obscenity and, yes, irresponsibility (since you like this word so much).

I said I like people like you, becasue as you note the price of crab is down and if you want to take credit for that, great, and thanks. Crab is delicious.

Good news that the price of crab is down. But obviously we have different reasons. I hope you will get a very delicious indigestion.

By the way, I am glad you are doing thinsgs that make you sleep better at night, but rest assured the seals and the world doesn't need you to save it.

I disagree. I will ask Sue to continue helping us patriotic Canadians to clean up our reputation, since we can't do it ourselves without their support.
