We must overturn the ban on seal products. The reputation of this material has already suffered so much that undoing the ban will not undo all the propaganda produced over the years but is the very least Canada can do to eradicate TB.
The WHO is telling Canada to step up it's game and eradicate TB " the disease of poverty"(WHO, 2017) by the year 2040.
Canada says it cannot do that.
The real reason Canada can't do it is because it's not trying.
To get rid of the poverty-borne disease, let's get rid of the poverty.
Start with overturning the ban on seal products.
Since the EU cites moral reasons for its seal ban, surely they could not bear the moral consequence of letting the Inuit live in poverty. Since the ban, the price of a sealskin has gone down 90% and the Inuit are in the worst poverty of any Indigenous nation in the world.
This is the damage that's been done. Reversing the ban is only the first step. The communities and their trading networks have been destroyed already. But when they are living equally they will have the chance to rebuild.
"No relationship is more important to Canada than the relationship with Indigenous Peoples." ~Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (National Indigenous Peoples Day, 2017)
