Nanaimo Anti Sealing Demonstration

Nanaimo Anti Sealing DemoThe Pacific Biological Station, 3190 Hammond Bay Road, Nanaimo, is marking its centennial with an open house on the weekend of Saturday, April 26, 2008, and the West Coast Anti Sealing Alliance plans to be there. The PBS is operated by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) who manage and subsidize the Canadian Commercial Seal Hunt on the East Coast of Canada.

Although the Nanaimo facility may not have a lot to do with the organized clubbing and skinning of 275,000 baby seals currently underway in the Gulf of St Lawrence, the DFO is a key link in the infrastructure our government is using to subsidize and promote this shameful activity.

The Alliance intends to mount a peaceful demonstration at the main entrance to the PBS on Hammond Bay Road from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, April 26, 2008. The Alliance’s goal is to expose the general public to the bitter truth about the Canadian Commercial Seal Hunt in an effort to shut down this horrifically cruel slaughter of baby seals forever.
