Please urge the Canadian Government to prohibit the trade in shark fins
Shark finning is the brutal and ecologically devastating practice of cutting fins off a shark and throwing the animal back into the ocean to die slowly. Canada prohibits this practice but continues to import products of shark finning.
In fact, Canada is the largest importer of shark fins outside of Asia. We have now seen bills from all parties acknowledging the need for action, so there is no excuse for any further delays.
