Written Question 22-12(7): Health Concerns Regarding Seal Meat
Item 7: Written Questions

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The Department of Health create a real scare to the residents of Broughton Island when the Health officials announced the high levels of PCBs in seal meat. As a result, younger people consume a lot less seal meat.

In yesterday's Globe and Mail, there is a report about some surprising findings, and I quote, "The greatest source of Omega 3 for northern peoples is seal meat, which contains several contaminants and, at the same time, their antidotes." Will the Minister commit to promote seal meat and, based on this finding reported in the Globe and Mail, perhaps get the department to produce brochures for Inuit coastal communities?
