Support Bill C-400 for mandatory Cat and Dog Fur labelling

Did you know it’s legal to import and sell CAT and DOG Fur in Canada?

 

Loose import laws allow pet fur products into Canada without any required labelling. MPs had a chance to stop this, but the Liberal majority voted down Bill C‐246 (the animal cruelty act) in the House of Commons, due to the broad scope of the bill and its protection of various animals. Animal cruelty may be controversial to many that profit from it, as was the case with Bill C-246, but most Canadians agree they don’t want to wear the fur of a cat or dog!

In April 2018, Brian Masse (NDP) introduced the Private Member’s Bill C-400, which seeks to change labelling laws and require imports to be labelled with the type of fur. Private bills rarely pass in a majority Government, so this bills needs our support!

We call on the Liberal party to vote in favour of  Bill C-400 and make fur labelling mandatory for all imports.

Please sign our petition here , and also take a few seconds to lend your support to the petition with our friends at Fur Bearers who have been fighting this battle much longer. Please share this with family, friends, and coworkers!

Stop the War on Wolves

Wolves are culled for “wildlife management” purposes to cover the impacts of industrial and human activity. The BC government contracts helicoptor companies to kill them via aerial shooting, and also kills via poison, trapping, and neck snares. Additionally, the federal government has expanded on the provincial wolf kill program via poisoning with strychinine and cyanide, which are acknowledged worldwide as brutal methods of killing animals due to the intensity and duration of suffering, as well as indiscriminately killing dogs, bears, coyotes, birds, and pets. Wildlife specialists, veterinarians, and First Nations are ringing the alarm bell around the destruction caused by this program.

Scientific data shows that industrial interests that show no regard for the environment nor wildlife are to blame for the the decline of Mountain Caribou, not wolves.

Furthermore, Canada Goose clothing tortures animals to make their product. Wolves and coyotes are trapped with crushing leg holds and torturous neck snares. With neck snares, it’s also common for the animal to die of jelly brain, when the snare slowly cuts off circulation from the head to heart but the blood keeps going into the head. The brain swells up until the wolf’s head explodes.

Together we can stop the war on wolves.
