Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

Whereas:
  • Millions of dogs and cats are inhumanely raised and confined, and brutally slaughtered for consumption and the harvest of the fur; and
  • The United States, England, Australia and the European Union have taken steps to prohibit the importation and/or sale of these pelts.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, request (or call upon) the Government of Canada to:
1. Recognize the cruelty and inhumane nature of the raising, confinement, and slaughter of dogs and cats;
2. Recognize the special relationships Canadians hold with dogs and cats in their homes and workplaces; and
3. Ban the importation of any dog and cat pelts or furs, and prohibit the sale of said products in Canada.
