Inuit card

Federal government accused of using Inuit for political gain, which would be totally unprecedented.

Sheryl Fink, the director of the Canadian seal campaign for the International Fund for Animal Welfare, notes that as far back as 2001, a Foreign Affairs e-mail talked about playing “the Nunavut Inuit card as leverage” in trade negotiations.

“We know they’re trying to play up this Inuit thing and portray all commercial hunting in Canada as Inuit hunting,” she said, describing the non-aboriginal hunt as much larger and more wasteful. “It is frustrating for us when we see lines getting blurred between the two because it is a deliberate tactic on the part of the government.”
