Don not support this. These gentle animals are shot or have their skulls smashed in by sealers. They are then skinned for their fur, often while they are still conscious. These are babies we are talking about. Think about what you are buying.

Before you make comment you should look up what you are talking about , unless you have been out hunting or live in the area , you cant always believe what you read. There's alto of hunters making a living from this animals, if you are going to stand up for one animal, you should stand up for all of them .Look and see how cows, chicken ,pig are tried, that's what we eat before you go on a ramp page about the seal look in you fridge.

PLEASE Sealing is an ugly business and should not be supported by anyone. Beyond the fact that the pups are beaten to death, it is a wasteful, barbaric industry with MANY people opposed to it. It is the only hunt that targets the infant of the species. It is disgustingly wasteful as the skinned carcasses are thrown away- if you are going to kill something have the decency and respect to use the whole thing. Also the natural habitat of the seal are shrinking due to climate change- this will result in a drastic decrease in their population. The annual seal hunt only accounts for less than 1% of the economy in Newfoundland. The seal hunt is irresponsible, cruel, and wasteful. Please I urge you to educate yourselves about the seal hunt before committing to support it.

hey Sean.. i am wealthy, 45, retired, want for nothing, and with 2 homes paid for.. and not from flogging crap to people with more money than brains, but from hard work, in a real and necessary industry, living a common sense, modest life, below my means existence.. And when i buy something, i consider the consequences, unlike most brainless, gaga eyed, dumb ass consumers now roaming our stinky, dirty , oily downtown streets of this one horse town.

Sealing is sealing and it means the horrendous deaths of animals for something as frivilous as a fur coat. The truth is that many Canadians are against the seal hunt and are not in favour of this tax-base supported nightmare!

so now can we expect to see similar support and all levels of government, media and broohaha every time some new entrepreneur opens a business in the province .. i am neither a fan or opponent of the seal hunt- but this show of back slapping and politicizing the opening of yet another place for our wealthy minority to do some more conspicuous consumption is embarrassing and offensive.... oh how i miss the st. john's of old when we were all poor and had some good sense..

Face it, you just don't like wealthy folks?That's your problem....you have the opportunity to be wealthy too!You live in a free and capitalistic society.Do you have a Ball and Chain holding you back?If not stop the whining about those who make our system work through creating new ventures that entail the hireing of working folks and the spinoffs in related industries.They are the ones who create wealth for all.Of course,if you want to go back to a time when a good number of people in the city of St.John's used slop buckets and humped water from the local cistern ,which was not a pleasent thing to do since that's where the waste from those slop buckets was dumped,be our guest.Newfoundland has a lot of vacant backwoods land you could move to!Bon Voyage!.....PS I wish the owners of this new business great success!
