Thousands of Dead Sharks Sold by Greedy Company Deserve Justice

Target: Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada

Goal: Shut down businesses that willfully kill endangered species for profit.

The Kiu Yick Trading Company, based in Victoria, Canada, has been found guilty of importing shark fins from endangered species. As a penalty for importing 434 kilograms of illegal shark products, this company has been fined a measly $60,000. This fine is a pathetic amount for a company that generates over $2 million in annual sales, and which contributed to the extermination of threatened species.

Most of the fins came from silky sharks, which is considered to be near-threatened. This shark has a long gestation and gives birth to only a few young that are slow to mature, making it particularly susceptible to illegal hunting.

Such businesses should not be allowed to continue to operate. Sign this petition to urge the government to take stricter actions against such willful disregard for the natural world, and shut down these reproachable companies.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Honourable Wilkinson,

Despite national and international bans, companies are still bringing illegal animal products into Canada. Recently, the Kiu Yick Trading Company from British Columbia was found guilty of importing shark fins from “near threatened” species of sharks. In response, your government has fined this company only $60,000. This is a pathetic penalty for a company that draws over $2 million dollars of revenue every year.

I urge you to consider the devastating environmental impact that illegal acts of this nature have upon the whole world. Companies that willfully commit such criminal acts should be severely penalized.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  3. Paula cleveland says:

    Leave the sharks alone. No sharks, means a dead ocean, which means a dead us.

  4. All animals and most humans (not the greedy killers or the bait and murder thrill killers) deserve to live the life they were meant to live. Shame on all those who this these killings are OK…they aren’t. They should be heavily fined and removed from society forever. In my opinion

  5. Ann Gavin says:

    These evil demonic savages wil scream in hell for ever and ever for their total disrespect towards God and His creatures.

  6. Eric Naji says:

    Long jail time for those responsible please!!

  7. Michelle Stewart says:

    They should be ordered to pay $1 million dollars as a fine. The owners should each be sentenced to 5 years in prison with no early parole. They must be threatened that if the company is caught doing anything like this again, the company will immediately get shut down permanently.

    How about we cut off the legs and arms of all those bastards involved and throw them in the ocean to drown. Best solution as far as I am concerned.

  9. Nadine brundage says:

    WILL SOONER THAN LATER GET WHAT’S COMING TO THEM FOR ALL THESE EVIL GREEDY MINDLESS INHUMANE SOULLESS ACTS!!

  11. Poor Earth fucked up boy now the online home is this human race that should diseappear!!!

  12. Barbara Garrison says:

    Canada, you’re pathetic. You have a prime minister who is completely apathetic to the suffering of animals, and you continue to support him. Sharks killed for their fins- for what? We all know what, and we all what what evil countries they’re being sent to.

  13. Deborah Morris says:

    Vile behaviour and not punished by an in effective poor government! Try stepping up to being an advanced society!

  14. Raymond Stevens says:

    Canada sounds like a real asshole of a country when it comes to animals. They murder seals and now this.

  15. Margaret Burlingham says:

    How many Million $ did this company pay taxes to the government? $60,000 fine is a slap on the hands and a wink as they all profit.

  16. All animal abusers globally must have the death penalty implemented and nothing less. A slow and agonizing death for these evil cretins is essential.

  17. Erica Sievers says:

    Time to nuke these evil sub human chinks into the next galaxy for all the evil they have done to this planet and other nations through their filthy disgusting backward eating habits which caused the Coronavirus and their backward way of thinking.

    Nothing good is ever going to come from this lot and when is enough, enough?

    They need to be brought up on genocide and crimes against humanity!

  18. CANADA is a HYPOCRITE!!! They look so well-organized and caring for nature, but IN REALITY CANADA is involved in lots of activities that can be defined as EXTREME ENVIRONMENTAL CRIME. The booming black market exotic animal trade, sadistic killings of baby-seals in front of their mothers….and now businesses that willfully kill endangered species for profit. Sharks killed for their fins, and this is allowed in Canada. These greedy, cynical and psychopathic animal abusers who destroy our planet should be SENTENCED to DEATH, wherever they are caught globally. Fines that they are imposed to pay are PURE MOCKERY toward LIFE on this planet.

  19. Βefore shooting the murderers, sodomize them!
