Dear Members of Newfoundland and Labrador
Tourist Bureaus:

I hope you will take the time to read this entire
message and view the two video films that are
recommended.

I will not be visiting Eastern Canada until sealing
has ended and is permanently OUTLAWED.
In fact, I refuse to buy ANY goods/services from
your region, including those from the Internet.

I'll be spreading the word far and wide, to friends,
family, business associates, religious and civic
groups and anyone else who will listen; imploring
them to boycott Eastern Canada until the
knuckle- dragging brutality of this obscene orgy
of death is history.

Supporting and promoting the torture and completely
unnecessary killing of *baby* seals every year in
Canada could prove to be the biggest mistake you
will ever make.

Whatever immediate financial benefits Canada's
economy may gain from the mass destruction of
seals for their fur will be nothing like the potential
economic loses suffered by all of Canada resulting
from a huge decline in world stature just because of
needlessly destroying millions of precious
*baby* seals.

This is a huge price to pay for not admitting you
are wrong!!

Conversely, your actions designed to permanently
stop the massacre of *baby* seals could be the
wisest and most important decision you will ever
make.

How many people that have or will see films like the
ones that follow decide to no longer travel to Canada
and no longer purchase products made in Canada?

How many people and organizations have already
decided to boycott anything that has to do with
Canada?

The following videos of what happens to *baby*
seals in Canada are just a few of the many videos
being broadcast by many organizations and are
being viewed continually throughout the world.

Would you want your children and all the children
in Canada, mature enough to understand, to view
the following films?

The *good will* you will help promote throughout the
world because of your bold and morally correct
actions will pay huge dividends for Canada!!

Canada this is your chance and opportunity to shine.
I hope you will take advantage of it.

Thank you.

For the sake of all animals.
