Canada's Archaic Pet Cruelty Laws Need Changing

February 12th, 2011, 06:12 PM
International Fund for Animal Welfare, which was founded in Canada and has grown to become one of the largest animal welfare charities in the world, recently published a report that compared animal rights laws in 13 industrialized countries. Canada ranked at the bottom in all areas.

And, I always used to say that I was proud to be Canadian. :(

If anyone wants to send this letter to the PM, their MP, the Justice Minister and Opposition Critic (it's done automatically when you tick the boxes in Step 3) here is the website .....

Maybe if we keep getting everyone to do this they'll finally listen. :fingerscr

I hope so too :fingerscr ......I emailed those websites asking people to forward it on to everyone they know. :thumbs up

I just noticed that I spelled Canadian wrong in my first post .....must have been because I was so ticked after reading that website. :(

Done!! Thank you Rainbow. I have signed a couple of these as well as petitions in the last couple of days. I will also be starting a thread with a listing of the cities that will be participating in Memorials, some of them are tomorrow (short notice, but I'm loading up the boys and hubby and going! :D). I'll also post a FB link to Advocates Against Outdoor Adventures Whistler (AAOAW) which is a wonderful community with great international and local support with 1 common goal: to change Canadian laws for animal protection and cruelty.
