Her statement June 16 from Hansard..
Ms. Peggy Nash (Parkdale—High Park, NDP)
moved for leave to introduce Bill C-232, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (cruelty to animals).

She said: Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague from Jeanne-Le Ber for seconding this bill.

This bill would better protect animals from intentional cruelty. Clearly, animals are sentient beings; they are not property. This bill would take the provision about animal cruelty out of the property section of the Criminal Code.

We have seen far too many examples of animal cruelty that escape the current laws. This bill would increase the likelihood of conviction for animal cruelty.

Please see many ways to help support C-232, effective animal cruelty legislation based on C-229 to show our Gov’t that in Canada animals matter 2! Due 2 the election we’re once again starting over w new Bill # C-232 but the messg remains the same.. 119 YRS W NO REAL CHANGES! The time is NOW!! We need these laws in place to make a difference and we need your help to do this!

(Motions deemed adopted, bill read the first time and printed)

 

Please take a sec and send a LETTER (or many to all MP’s, PM, Justice minister/committee and senators!) so easy to do from these great links!

This is critical 2 getting this done and has the most impact!

Huge thanx again to Prev MP Mark Holland who fought tirelessly for these changes with his series of Bills over the years! So sad to see he won’t be championing these badly needed changes anymore on the Hill but I’m sure he’ll continue the support how he can! You and your Bills are our inspiration and we will continue this fight until it gets done! Best wishes on your future endeavours and thanx for being our voice for so long! You will be missed! Good luck Mark! x

    Exciting update for our fellow animal lovers! Stop Animal Cruelty Petition supporting Bill C-373 has been prepared by Clerk's Office and is ready for submission! (No word on final # yet, was 111,000+ guess it's a surprise!?) MP Myron Thompson will be presenting it to the House of Commons with a statement, on Mon. Feb 19, after 3 PM (EST)! Watch on cpac or a statement will also appear in "Hansard", the official record of debates. From there it goes to the Gov't, which has 45 days to table a response. Everyone cross your fingers, write last minute emails, pray, and hope that we'll finally have a resolution to this century old debate!

    Please go to http://www.northernhorse.com/wildhorses/ and see how you can help stop the cruel and unnecessary slaughter of wild horses in Alberta! Remember Bill C-373 covers owned and un-owned animals, which may offer some protection for these priceless horses!
