September has been a busy month of campaigning, and we need your powerful voice.
Marineland is trying to export beluga whales to a US aquarium, outside of Canada’s protections. While the US has approved the import permit, there is still an opportunity to have an impact. Canada still needs to approve the export permit, and we need your voice to help whales!
The Code of Practice for the care and handling of pigs in Canada is up for review and public comment. As one of two animal welfare groups with a seat at the table at NFACC, we have the latest updates, and we need your help to show Canadians care about protecting pigs.
Our Canadian coalition to end the wildlife trade continues to grow. We have met with Members of Parliament (MPs) who are very supportive, but they aren’t hearing enough from their constituents on this issue. We need your help to change that by writing to your MP.
In Ontario, the short-sighted ‘Ag Gag’ law has passed, but the regulations are open for public comment. We encourage Ontario residents to participate to have your voice heard and speak out for animals. (You can still comment if you’re from outside of Ontario. Let the Ontario government know how other Canadians feel about this issue!)
Making your voice heard on these issues will help inform laws and regulations by showing that Canadians believe that animal welfare is a priority. Keep reading and help us make some noise for animals!
