Dear Ambassador of The Netherlands:
As a Canadian citizen and a wildlife preservationist, I am writing to
ask your government to please ban the importation of all Canadian seal
products, as several countries are already doing, and some other
countries, including Belgium, are in the process of giving it their
The Candian commerical seal hunt is by far the largest, most cruel,
most brutal and least justifiable slaughter of marine mammals in history.
Imagine a single file of the 325,000 baby seals killed in Canada every
year along a highway, up to 40% of which being skinned alive. At one metre
per seal, the seal line would stretch along the highway for 325 kilometres.
Please find below a letter I sent to the Embassy of Belgium in Ottawa,
Canada, which you will find self-explanatory. I hope that The Netherland
will join the increasing number of civilized nations in the world in
opposing this barbaric industry which has no place in the 21st Century.
