Historic Efforts to Phase Out Canada's Commercial Seal Slaughter Earn
Lawmaker Top Honours

Ottawa -- It has been a landmark year for Sen. Mac Harb, whose
historic Bill S-210, which would phase out the commercial seal slaughter, was
unanimously passed to a second reading in Canada's Senate, thereby ensuring
that the debate will continue. And to honour the senator for his tireless
efforts, PETA will present him with the group's 2012 Canadian of the Year
award in his Ottawa office on Thursday.
When: Thursday, December 27, 11 a.m.
Where: Office of Sen. Mac Harb, 376 East Block, The Senate of Canada, Parliament Hill,
clear to PETA that with Sen. Harb's leadership and hard work, it's only a
matter of time before the cruel, economically unviable commercial seal
slaughter is relegated to the history books," says PETA Senior Vice
President Dan Mathews.
As Sen. Harb has explained in speeches to the Senate and on The
Huffington Post, the market for seal products has all but disappeared. The
European Union, Russia (which had been importing 95 percent of Canadian seal
pelts), and the U.S. have all banned Canadian seal fur imports. In addition,
millions of taxpayer dollars are wasted propping up this industry, which costs
the country at least $7 million each year. "[T]he majority of Canadians
want an end to the commercial seal hunt," Sen. Harb said in his Senate
address on June 14. "[T]he [government needs] to be frank with commercial
sealers and to help them move beyond the clinically dead seal hunt."

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
