The Canadian Sealers Association (CSA) was formed in 1982 in response to negative publicity against the sealing industry by some animal rights groups. Based in Atlantic Canada it was designed to speak on behalf of sealers primarily in Newfoundland, the Quebec North Shore and the Magdalen Islands. Its primary focus was to develop an educational and public awareness campaign to counter act the animal rights groups. The CSA represents more than 6,000 sealers who are professional fishers, licensed by the government of Canada. The Association has a volunteer Board of Directors elected from the general membership at an Annual General Meeting. An Executive Committee of the Board provides direction to the Executive Director and support staff at its provincial office.
The Fur Council of Canada is a national, non-profit association representing people working in every sector of the Canadian fur trade, in all regions of the country.

Inspired by their parents, three out of their five children followed in their footsteps by joining them. In 1985, the building of specially designed premises in Barraute marked a major step toward the growth of Fourrures Grenier.

As a granddaughter of Seal Hunters, I proudly embrace my culture by creating accessories that can be worn with class and style, yet affordable on any budget.
This website is devoted to fighting Terrorism and the forced integration of Marxist oriented ideals and values into the American mainstream. By exposing the violent actions and the violent speech (and it is very violent, just keep reading) of these so-called "Non-Violent" and "Peaceful" groups, the truth is revealed for all to see. Their brand of Radical Marxist Liberalism poses a serious threat to the American public. They are among us and this website exposes them for who they are and what they are based on THEIR actions and THEIR agendas.
Being a Newfoundlander, the subject of the seal hunt has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I grew up during the time of the Greenpeace demonstrations when people were arrested on the water front of St. John's harbour for chaining themselves to sealing vessels...
humanewatch.org _ One of the more useful tools on the Internet is Open Secrets. This is where the Center for Responsive Politics tracks where the money in politics comes from, and who gets it. Playing “gotcha” with Open Secrets is a popular parlor game in Washington: The idea is that political campaigns can become larger than life—so large, in fact, that they need independent watchdogs.
