Thread Name: BS: Sir Paul & the seals
Subject: RE: BS: Sir Paul & the seals
Somehow knew this thread (before opening) was yours gnu. Who else but a maritimer or Newfoundlander could see the other side of this issue.
The quota alloted to the seal hunt helps keep the seal population from overpopulating ... which in itself affects other species. More importantly it provides the only way to make a 'decent living' to a community of people living on the coastal waters of Newfoundland that have been all but forgotten an neglected from the rest of Canada if not the rest of the world.
Expect to take some flak from this gnu.
