"When it comes to the commercial seal hunt, this poll shows that opposition
literally starts on the doorsteps of Parliament Hill and extends across the
country," said IFAW Canada’s Director, Olivier Bonnet.
Opposition to specific aspects of the seal hunt was even higher with some 77
per cent of voters, stating an opinion, calling for a ban on the killing of
seals under three months of age and 78 per cent opposed to government subsidies
for the hunt.
