The Seal Hunt

The seal hunt gives all Canadians a bad name. I resent that. It hurts all Canadian exports. They are metaphorically tainted with seal blood. There is no pressing economic reason for the hunt. It continues for the joy of killing, to thumb noses at the rest of Canada the hunters perceive as meddlers and to uphold tradition. Those are not sufficiently valid motives. You selfish Newfoundland brats, grow up! You are even hurting your fellow Newfoundlanders by tarring their world reputation as being barbaric as you.
