Revoke their decision to slaughter 70,000 grey seals.

There is no credible scientific evidence to support the Canadian Senate's claim that culling 70,000 grey seals will help solve the issue of depleted fish stocks in the Atlantic (which has been caused by overfishing). Instead, I propose using the money to fund training and support of a new livelihood for Canadian fisherman: Organic Food Factories using Aquaponics technology.

      "Life is life's greatest gift. Guard the life of another creature as you would your own because it is your own. On life's scale of values, the smallest is no less precious to the creature who owns it than the largest."

      I don't hold animals superior or even equal to humans. The whole case for behaving decently to animals rests on the fact that we are the superior species. We are the species uniquely capable of imagination, rationality, and moral choice - and that is precisely why we are under an obligation to recognize and respect the rights of animals.

      Unnecessary slaughter of our resources is not what we need to remedy our depletion of our fisheries and it is a global focus to stop senseless killing of our marine life.. this is so heinous and unacceptable of an act by humans who are supposed to be the 'superior' species? i am ashamed to be of the human species anymore.. we are so out of touch with "COMPASSION" and "WISDOM".. 'slaughter' is what this person should experience.. 70,000 times over.. yeah, I get a bit disgusted with this level of 'Stupidity' in so -o-o-o many acts... that seem to continue for so many years! 'Ground' Fishermen seems like it should be on ALL menus.. just a thought.. like with cheese and Tartar Sauce...tasty..

      Without healthy oceans we are all dead; there are many other, ways to help the ocean & most of them start with what humans are currently putting into them.
