Canada Seal Hunt To Be Supported By A Song

This time of the year, the Canada Seal Hunt is always in the news. This time, at the suggestion of Senator Céline Hervieux-Payette, the senator and singer Jean Lapointe will consecrate a song to the seal hunters, on his next album.  
The initiative will be aimed as well at countering the groups who are putting the pressure 
on, to end the seal hunt in the eastern side of the country.

Mrs Hervieux-Payette estimates that the song entitled “La chasse aux phoques” (The Seal Hunt)
 represents a gift for the hunters of the Magdalen Islands, New
foundland and Labrador and for the North, as well as for all Canadians.
According to the Liberal Senator, the song sung by Jean Lapointe will also be broadcast in Europe.

The launch of Jean Lapointe's next album, entitled “L’eau” (The Water), will be first seen by its first audience on Wednesday, April 29th, 2009. 

Jean Lapointe is a Current Member of the following Senate committee(s):
Library of Parliament (Joint)

It's always nice to see the Canadian seal hunt supported.

I think Canada is being pushed around too much by the anti sealing crowd, most of which are not even in Canada.

I didn't know that there is such a thing as a seal hunt. I am sure it has been around for a long time so it is now a tradition. Do they eat the seals they kill? If not what do they kill them for? I am not being mean just curious about this.

I have something for you at my site so come and see.

Love and Blessings,
