Important stuff here: the Vancouver Sun has published an opinion piece for a Humane Society International staffer calling for an end to seal hunting.
Leaving ethical issues completely aside, the hunt has turned into a financial disaster:

The piece continues:
To put it simply, there is negligible commercial demand for seal products. That means there is no time like the present to call an end to the killing and forge a better future for Canada, our fishermen and our wildlife.
