The fight to save the seal hunt

The fight to save the seal hunt started the moment the first seal was harvested off the coast of Newfoundland, but the real battles began when celebrity animal rights activists took up the cause. The Telegram has covered the hunt, and the fight, for many years. Here is a selection of our most recent stories.

He(Gritch) makes me embarassed to be Canadian!He made a big fool of himself. Pam Anderson, on the other hand, represented Canadians well.She didn't personally attack Gritch nor did she try and humiliate him .(And she could have!but she didn't.)She was there for a cause she believes in - NOT to throw personal insults.
