Add Your Voice & Your Name To A Petition To Modernize Canada’s Dismally Weak & Outdated Animal Protections Act

A Call-Out from Niagara Action For Animals in Niagara, Ontario

Posted March 17th, 2016 on Niagara At Large

Dear Friends of Animals

From your arm chairs you can help support a new Bill C-246 – introduced by Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, the federal Liberal MP for the Toronto area riding of Beaches-East York – by going to the link below and signing the petition.support

At the bottom of the petition, there is also a link you can follow with suggestions on writing a letter to your own Federal Member of Parliament.

The Modernizing Animal Protections Act would make common sense improvements to the animal cruelty section of the Criminal Code.

The Act would prohibit the practice of shark finning in Canadian waters and ban the import of shark fins not attached to the carcass, and would ban the sale of dog and cat fur, and require animal fur products be labeled with the country of origin and animal species.

You want Shark Fin Soup? It starts with hunters cutting fins off the sharks while they are alive, then throwing the creature back in the sea to drown. Calling this a centuries old cultural tradition is no excuse for this cruelty and destruction of one of the world's most magnificent and mysterious ocean creatures.
