- 2925 days ago -
Almost all Canadians (95 percent) agree that animal pain and suffering should be limited as much as possible, but we still use animal cruelty legislation enacted in 1892. Our views on animal welfare have changed dramatically in the last 119 years, yet

There was an atempt a few years ago to change the laws and make them
more up to date. The bill went nowhere and unless we have an overwhelming demand for change, the animals will be pushed aside ~ again.

Our laws are archaic and make animals 'posessions' affording them no personallity or feelings. We talk of wanting to help and we pour millions into the pet industry yet our laws are pathetically unchanged in almost 120 years.

Not only should we sign this petition but any others that come by us. A letter to your MPP & the pm's office. should also be sent by every person who respects the value of these prescious lives.

Unless a strong outpouring of letters and petitions floods our gov't, the animals will be ignored formany more years while animals remain no more than possesions with no emotional or physical characterisics recognized.

Veterinarians,vet institutions,business partners and groups related to animals are members or have been invited to join celebration of the 250 anniversary of veterinarian profession by the WORLD VET ASSOCIATION.The whole world is represented there.Almost all the countries and certainly all continents are represented. Major words: ONE HEALTH (meaning health for everyone including animals) and WELFARE as the IDEAL STATUS for people and animals. - THE GOAL TO ACHIEVE! - After those words and clear purpose, Canada and every other country should beguin to work for the plan and SHOW LEVEL OF COMPROMISE. We should keep reminding them this goal and asking for acts and results. They cannot say a thing and do other.That's finished.They have to act acordingly to ideals, commitments and recommendations of the whole group.Or they are part of the group working for the WELFARE, or they are acting against their own purpose. We can always ask WVA what it is supose to happen if a member does not act accordingly.

Signed, Canada is governed by England, they are a colony of England, they should keep this in mind:
It was Queen Victoria who started the Humane Society because she loved her dogs so much and she saw how other people were treating their animals cruelly.

It is well past the time to update the laws concerning animal cruelty in Canada. If only this government would listen to the people.

I truly hope there is a curse attached for human beings who mistreat any animal. They are pure souls, which cannot be said for humans.
