*Support Sen. Harb's Bill to End Canada's Seal Slaughter:*

As per this letter recently received from PETA (below), Senate is debating the issue - so your support by signing the above petition would be timely!
Oct. 17, 2012
As you may know, Canadian Senator Mac Harb introduced Bill S-210 to phase out the commercial seal hunt. Just yesterday Sen. Harb delivered a compelling speech before the Senate, and debate on the bill resumed. He stated, "The government has to sit down with the stakeholders in the industry and talk realistically about an industry-wide buyout." Now that Russia -- which had been importing 95% of Canadian seal pelts -- has joined the U.S., EU, Mexico and others in banning seal fur imports, there are no markets.
In a recent Huffington Post blog post, Sen. Harb acknowledged that animal advocacy groups such as PETA and our supporters have played an important role in moving Bill S-210 forward. Now is the time to show support for the bill as the debate continues by taking action here. As Sen. Harb says, "Your efforts are making a difference."
Thank you for everything that you do to help animals!
