Not With My Taxes! - End Canada's Commercial Seal Hunt [Mar. 13th, 2009|11:54 am]
Toronto Activists Community


This is an extremely important event! Our tax dollars are supporting the largest slaughter of marine animals! IT'S TIME TO PUT AN END TO THIS!


Not With My Taxes! - End Canada's Commercial Seal Hunt
Saturday, March 14th, 2009
1:45pm - 3:00pm
Dundas Square
(SE corner of Yonge and Dundas in Toronto)

In order to try to make this the biggest and most inclusive anti-seal hunt rally we've ever had, this years event will feature "The Harper Seals" (see below poster) performing their hits "Don't Be Cruel" and "Stayin' Alive" to show Prime Minister Stephen Harper that Canadians want an end to the commercial seal hunt for the sake of the seals and the economy! Our MC for the event will be Toronto's Kimberly Carroll, Television Show Host from "Take This House and Sell It."

This is a family friendly event, and we hope that you will encourage your friends and families to attend, as we need to show the media, Canadian politicians, and the world abroad that ordinary Canadians are AGAINST the seal hunt!

Please take a look at our cute and silly promotional Youtube video that was made in NYC to get an idea of how our Toronto family friendly performance will look this Saturday, March 14th. The same performance will be taking place in Ottawa on Sunday March 15th.

Signs and placards will be handed out for the official presentation and "The Harper Seals" performance at 2pm. We will also have a tent set up from 10am - 3pm in Dundas Square with various activities for you to take part in: colouring (for kids), get your photo taken with our seal mascots, read about the seal hunt, get signs and leaflets to distribute to the public, and sign the petition against the commercial seal hunt.

Animal Alliance will also be present with a video camera to record people who wish to send a video message to the EU countries calling for ban on Canadian Seal products.

I'm a bit confused - how are tax dollars paying for the seal hunt?

Tax dollars and government subsidies fund the entire hunt. This includes paying the Canadian Coast Guard ice-breakers to lead sealers to the seal pups and paying for government officials to take trips to Europe to find markets for Canadian seal products.

Senator Mac Harb tried to pass a bill 2 weeks ago against the commercial seal hunt so that only Aboriginal people will be able to hunt in Canadian water. Check out the site!
