Seal Slaughter Stopped by Russia. Canada? Not So Much.
MARCH 22, 2009
The ministry said: “This is a serious step forward to protect Russia’s biological diversity. Kudos for Russian leader Vladimir Putin for stopping the slaughter of seals. Maybe Canada can learn something from the former KGB agent and avid hunter about compassion. This decision was made largely thanks to public environmental organisations which took an active position on this issue.”
