'As a sealer ... I am the endangered species'

“As a sealer, as a fisherman standing before you today, I say to you that I am the endangered species. I am endangered but I still fight back. I will survive. I will not let animal rights become more important than human rights. I will not let people give souls to animals while they rob me of my human dignity and right to earn a livelihood.”

- Small, 1985, as quoted in Volume 2 of the 1986 Report of the Royal Commission into Seals and Sealing in Canada.
