More than six thousand restaurants and grocery stores in the United States have pledged they will no longer purchase Canadian seafood from provinces where sealing is practiced.
This boycott is part of the Protect Seals campaign launched by the Humane Society of the United States. It includes major chains like Whole Foods. It's also being supported by more than 40 restaurateurs who were named Best New Chef by Food and Wine Magazine.
Cathal Armstrong, chef owner of Restaurant Eve in Alexandria, Virginia explains why he signed onto the Chefs for Seals campaign.
