The WTO wasn’t persuaded at all by Canada’s claim that the slaughter can be humane.
The World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled that the EU can legally ban the import of seal fur and other products because of “moral concerns.” The WTO wasn’t persuaded at all by Canada’s claim that the slaughter can be humane. This victory follows appeals by EU resident Jude Law, who wrote to the WTO on PETA U.K.’s behalf, and Canadian Pamela Anderson, who wrote to the WTO on PETA’s behalf, urging it to do just what it’s done. Previously, PETA also got music legends Joan Jett, Iggy Pop, and Sarah McLachlan to weigh in, requesting that the WTO hearings be open so that the public could be fully informed and better able to submit comments to the WTO panel deciding the case.
