Are you a proud Canadian? Stubbornly nostalgic? Love the smell of rendered seal fat? You may be eligible for the Department of Obsolete Industry’s new Seal Blubber Innovation Tax Credits.
Surprise! The Department of Obsolete Industry was a hoax by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) to highlight the massive amount of tax dollars wasted to support the commercial seal hunt.
With little demand in Canada or internationally, sealing just doesn’t make economic sense. IFAW believesĀ it time to put a stop to this obsolete industry and start supporting economically sustainable alternatives that will actually provide a future for rural Newfoundlanders.
