info to help the plight of baby seals in canada
there is an international boycott against canadian seafood until canada bans its atrocious seal hunt, where baby seals are clubbed and then skinned (40% of them still alive) for their pelts. if businesses boycott canada's seafood to the extent that they suffer an economic loss, canada WILL put an end to that cruel and unusual practice. red lobster is one of the largest buyers of canadian seafood. at this point, they are utterly uninterested in changing their buying ways to help out this cause. they can buy seafood from other places easily, they just don't want to. let's make them see that we as consumers are disgusted with their apathy! please take one minute to leave a comment at 1-800-lobster. an outcry will make all the difference.
