It takes but one voice to be heard; many to be heeded. Silence may sometimes be golden; it is is more often a killer...

We've been thinking... what can we do? How can our voice be heard?

We live on the New Brunswick, Canada border. We sit patiently in line passing through Canadian customs then go through an even rigorous interrogation coming home into the US. We do this because we shop and tour the Maritime Provinces. It's a beautifu country. The people are hospitable. The money (for US citizens) is not so great anymore, but that is neither here nor there when it comes to quality of products or attractions.

One of our favorite restaurants is just south of Woodstock, overlooking the St. John River. We've been going there for over 20 years. We made reservations for our upcoming anniversary.

However, and this has nothing personal to do with the restaurant/owners, we have just cancelled. We just watched (again) video of the 2007 seal hunt on (a collaboration between Humane Society Intl/Canada & Humane Society of U.S.), but it hit us harder than it has in the past. Perhaps it's because hunt protesters are being put on trial for allegedly violating a 10-metre observation distance. Observation Distance...

Vulnerable, defenseless animals are being brutally clubbed and shot and stabbed to death for nothing but $$$, and concerned people are on trial for merely filming and reporting it....

We thought Canada was civilized. How wrong. It's Insane.

Yes, cruelties go on in our country, in all countries. It goes on in neghborhood backyards, on the streets we drive. No one place can claim immunity from the senseless abuse of animals.

But to allow a mass, brutal and barbaric slaughter of pup seals that cannot escape the monsters running at them with steel-hooked clubs, is nothing more than government sanctioned 'genocide'.

270,000 SEALS WERE PERMITTED TO BE KILLED during the 2007 spring hunt.

270,000 -- after one of the warmest winters/springs already killed hundreds, perhaps thousands, of them naturally.

One has to wonder when Canada annihilates this species, what are they going to go after next?

Intelligent human beings would see this future debacle coming...

Intelligent human beings would see how WRONG this is RIGHT NOW....

So, until Canada regains it moral, common, civilized sense, our wallet will not be crossing the border.

That's our voice. Not terribly loud, but fundamentally strong.

One voice added to another added to another makes a powerful stand. Innocent animals killed for mankind's greed...shame. Consider my voice joined with yours to end this atrocity.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
