The decision is for the Proposition: Sam Burns
Reason for Decision:
Taiji dolphin hunt violates international law as per the Messenger '94 card, which in turns justifies the UN to pass a resolution decrying the violation. At this point, the CP cannot compete, forcing me to vote for the proposition.
