A Toronto Star columnist writes that, because of this past week’s vote by the European Union to ban seal pelt imports, the end of Canada’s sealing industry is at hand.
What’s interesting is the reluctant tone the article takes toward embracing this development. Reluctant, that is, until the very end:
It’s time for sealers to do something else. Instead of whining about how unfair the rest of the world is, the federal government should help them make that transition.
At least the seals will be happy.
