Skeena MP Andy Burton continued to press for a seal hunt on the west coast, as the House of Commons met late this week.
“There is interest on the Queen Charlotte Islands and on Coastal BC, in my riding of Skeena, in initiating a commercial seal hunt based on financial viability and seal population stability,” the MP said. Mr. Burton stands behind his proposal for developiong a seal hunt on the coast and vows to continue to push the federal government on the issue.
