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.
Arthur Poletti
