Although I somehow could not help noting and signing this petition because of my fierce opposition to factory farming and any kind of animal abuse, I must also point out that the wording of the petition is quite a disappointment.

For one thing, it is nonsensical to expect that in a facility that holds as many as 25,000 (!) birds it would be thinkable or practicable to follow any standards for anything even remotely resembling "animal welfare". In such conditions it is impossible to imagine the animals ever being able to see what the true meaning of "welfare" is--i.e., well-being in the sense of health, happiness, and good fortune. In this, and not only in this, the factory farming system greatly fails and cannot be reformed, since it is focused on profit and not on concerns for "animal welfare", with its very nature excluding such a possibility. Alas, such is the ugly truth behind the facade of "animal welfare standards" here.

Another thing is the mention in the text, "We deserve to know whether the food we eat is not supporting animal cruelty!" Well, who, nowadays, can be under the delusion that any animal product, especially that which comes from factory-farmed animals, could be cruelty-free in absolute terms? Knowing it cannot possibly reach such standards, and minding it, people simply go for something better!

And, the last thing, do you think that a cosmetic change in it, such as the "humane" label, can change anything about its real nature? "Humanely raised food" (sic -- you must mean, "animals") and "certified humane" constitute a myth. Although making products seemingly better, such labels miss the target, as it were, since things remains the same in principle, and so such labels are, obviously, only designed to make people feel better about things that would or could be disturbing otherwise.

eject this proposal because:

It contradicts park policies designed to limit development – The proposed hotel development contradicts the 2010 Jasper Park Management Plan and the 2007 policy on outlying accommodations, both of which specifically prohibit new commercial accommodation outside Jasper town site in order to limit development pressures. Allowing the Maligne Lake hotel to proceed would create a precedent that could open the floodgates to uncontrolled development in our national parks.
It threatens at-risk wildlife – An increase in morning and evening traffic on the Maligne Lake road would jeopardize the very survival of the Maligne herd of woodland caribou which has declined precipitously in the past 15 years from more than 60 to just 6 animals. The hotel proposal could also harm grizzly bears and harlequin ducks – both sensitive species which rely on the northern end of Maligne Lake as important habitat.
It doesn’t respect the law – According to the National Parks Act, the federal government’s first priority in all park management decisions must be maintaining or restoring the health of park ecosystems. A proposal that threatens park wildlife doesn’t meet this test.
Canadians don’t want it – A survey of Maligne Lake visitors showed 99% were satisfied with their visit. There is no evidence that park visitors and the Canadian public want this strip of development along the shoreline of Maligne Lake, and no demonstrated need to build a hotel. Visitor surveys and polling show that Canadians want their national parks kept wild, and that people come to Rocky Mountain National Parks for the scenic natural beauty and wildlife viewing.
Jasper is a global treasure – As a World Heritage Site, Canada has promised the world we will protect Jasper National Park on behalf of the global community.

I can't bear to read all about it it! I read just enough to be sure I wanted to sign (and in most cases I want to know both sides of things!)
