My thanks to Erika Caballos, president
of Vancouver-based CATCA, for organizing the 2008 Vancouver
anti-seal-hunt demo, all the more so since she was also in Europe for 3
weeks until a week ago to exert more external pressure on Canada towards
terminating the atrocity ASAP. Erika also attended the last IWC
(International Whaling Commission) meeting.
Thanks are also due to Regina Flores
of IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) for bringing support
from Ontario to Vancouver to make this year's event as successful as
possible, and to Dr. David Lavigne for his enlightening PowerPoint
presentation on the issu in the evening of March 14.
Joanne Chang is always there
year after year to lead and rally the troop.
