Today, Sir Paul sent a letter to Canada's Prime Minister, Paul Martin, asking him to support a ban on his country's harp seal hunting practice. Sir Paul wrote:
"We wanted to put you on notice that if Canada moves forward with another hunt next year, we will do all we can to focus attention on this unjustified, outdated and truly horrific practice, including, potentially, visiting the seals and the ice."
Next year, Sir Paul and Heather are making plans to visit the north west Atlantic ice floes to draw attention to the plight of the harp seals.
