PETITION TO SEND TO ALL CANADIAN SENATORS ABOUT BABY SEALS SENATOR MAC HARB ASKS FOR HELP URGENT

Senator Mac Harb who is the Senator the more active to fight against the hunt of baby seals asked for help. He has recently tabled a Notice of Motion directing the Senate Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans to find specific ways to help support Canada’s Inuit and aboriginal hunters affected by the European Union ban on commercial seal products. He is seconded in this action by Senator Charlie Watt, who represents Northern Quebec in the Senate. Senator Watt also sits on the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans.

 

So he asks to send to all the Canadians Senators (all the email addresses are good) the petitions below in English and in French, because as you know in Canada they spoke the 2 languages.

Sample Letter.

 

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,



i am writing you to find specific ways to help support Canada’s Inuit and aboriginal hunters affected by the European Union ban on commercial seal products.





Along with looking at ways to help these Canadians take advantage of their unique exemption as subsistence hunters, I believe that this motion will compel the government to move past its futile efforts to challenge the EU ban on commercial seal products at the World Trade Organization. As we know, this challenge will take several years, will cost millions of dollars and is unlikely to overturn the carefully drafted EU ban.

 

Canadians living in Canada’s Northern and Atlantic communities expect and deserve a proactive, viable strategy from their government as the commercial seal hunt comes to an end once and for all.  I thank you for your interest and contribution to achieving this goal.



Please support Senator Mac Harb and Senator Watt,

 support Canada’s Inuit and aboriginal communities by voting in favour of the motion.

 



Sincerely,


 In French:

Mesdames et Messieurs,

Je vous écris afin que soient examinées des mesures précises pour appuyer les chasseurs inuits et autochtones du Canada touchés par l’interdiction du commerce des produits du phoque qu’a imposée l’Union Européenne.

Je crois qu’en plus de permettre de trouver des façons d’aider ces Canadiens à tirer profit de l’exemption unique dont ils jouissent en tant que chasseurs de subsistance, cette motion obligera le gouvernement à cesser de déployer inutilement des efforts pour contester auprès de l’Organisation Mondiale du Commerce l’interdiction du commerce des produits du phoque imposée par l’UE. Comme nous le savons, cette contestation sera tranchée dans plusieurs années, coûtera des millions de dollars et n’aboutira probablement pas à une invalidation de l’interdiction soigneusement rédigée par l’UE.

Les Canadiens qui vivent dans les collectivités du Nord et de l’Atlantique attendent et méritent que leur gouvernement adopte une stratégie viable et proactive alors que la chasse commerciale du phoque tire à sa fin une bonne fois pour toutes. Je vous remercie de votre intérêt et de votre aide pour atteindre cet objectif.

S'il vous plaît apportez votre appui au Sénateur Mac Harb et au Sénateur Watt,
ainsi qu’aux collectivités inuites et autochtones du Canada en votant en faveur de la motion.

Je vous prie de recevoir, Mesdames, Messieurs, l’expression de mes salutations les meilleures.
