    Newfoundlanders (and yes, I am one) seem to be very comfortable to lean quite far to the left on most issues, thanks largely it seems to being told what to think by vocal progressives , especially the ABC PCs.

    So how do reconcile being the object of such revulsion by the rest of the world's loony left on the seal hunt issue? Doesn't bother you? Not a trace of cognitive dissonance? Yeah, thought so, easier to just ignore that massive grey pachyderm filling up the room.....

    Bottom Line: If seals were ugly nobody would give a sh*t. That's the ugly TRUTH. No problem slaughtering every other animal on earth, but not the cute faced seal. Sweet Irony: does it bother you to be from NF, and not NL. Sounds like cognitive dissonance to me.

    If there was a market or a need then fine, harvest what is required. It seems too many people want to force a market just to earn a living. As they saying goes, keep up or be left behind. I can not walk into Sobeys here in St. Johns and buy Seal, why then should we think we can force others to purchase a product that is not even on our store shelves?

    Only place I know to purchase Seal is from the back of a truck on Harbour Street. Not too much demand I guess. Maybe the Seal Industry needs to move onto greener pastures as many others have needed to do in-order to put food on the table.

    Killing baby seals is wrong!!!! Too many hunters club any seal they can no matter what their size.. It makes me sick.

    Mark......WE DON'T KILL THE BABY SEALS. As for the demand for seal meat and other products, well, people have to realise that we (the people) Europeans, France, etc have upset the natural balance by combing the sea for every last fish. Now the seals are up every fresh water brook for miles away from the ocean. I've personally had to drive around a seal on the veterans memorial highway where it swam up the gould brook after fish. I think there should be a bounty put on them. People should be paid to get the numbers down.
