Bill C-246 #ItsTimeCanada
Each year, over 100,000 kilograms of shark fins are imported into Canada. Sharks are often finned alive and have their bodies thrown back into the ocean to die agonizing deaths.
Currently, cat and dog fur does not have to be labeled as such when imported into Canada. This fur often comes from countries with no animal welfare legislation or industry standards.
Canada’s laws protecting animals are terribly outdated and enable people to get away with many forms of animal cruelty.
Bill C-246, the Modernizing Animal Protections Act, can change all of this by banning the importation of shark fins, cat and dog fur, and making the language in the Canadian Criminal Code much stronger.
Justin Trudeau and the Liberal government are currently trying to stop Bill C-246 from passing its second reading in the house of commons. They are being influenced by the fear mongering of lobbyists from the animal use industries, when this Bill would not effect any of these industries or their accepted practices.
Join us, contact your MP and tell them you support Bill C-246 for the animals and that you expect them too as well as your elected representative.
