Animal rights have won some battles but not the war over sealing

If they win the war you will have to look around you to see who among you will be the next victim. The beef, pork, chicken, lamb producer? The clothes manufacturer, the shoemaker, the auto manufacturer, the furniture manufacturer? Anyone who uses animals for any purpose at all?

Canadian sealing is the sustainable use of a natural resource conducted under the strictest of humane killing regulations with quotas established through rigorous scientific studies of the populations, writes Jim Winter.
