Stop the Seal Hunt

Canada's Seal Cull is Cruel

Animal rights groups are expected to protest at the start of this year's seal cull in Canada.

Up to 280,000 animals could be killed during the hunt, which takes place every year.

The Canadian government allows people to cull the harp seals as they say it's important to let them make money from the creatures' oil and fur.

Animal rights groups say it is cruel, and a ban on importing the products into Europe is looking more likely.


Although most animals are shot, some are killed by blows from large clubs.


Canadian authorities say the animals are killed quickly, and don't suffer unnecessarily.


America, the Netherlands and Belgium have already banned Canadian seal products.

    The same reason America says its okay to kill chickens. We eat foods, meats. How does killing a seal make it any different. I'm sure the mother seal kills too so she can feed her little ones. It's life. I'm not saying its right but it's just the way it is. That's life.

There's a character limit, unfortunately it doesn't show it, so sometimes you have to delete large amounts of text to fit in your replies. That's a rather radical false dichotomy. It doesn't have to be equal income or people starving, there's middle ground, something like basic income would achieve your goals without taking all of the rich people's money away.

Wealth is distributed equally, Education and health care is provided by the state, and Focus is on the progress of the community as a whole. What's not to love about it? Why should wealth be distributed equally?  I think wealth inequality should be significantly lessened, but cannot, should not, and need not be eliminated. Lots of systems other than communism provide state health care and education. Just like democratic republics are supposed to represent the people? Communism is susceptible to the same corruption and politicking as any other system.  I just think everyone being equal money-wise is better then people being poor and forced to live on the street and die.
