Listen Up: Part Two. The Petition

Here are the links you need to support Bill C-322 in English et en francais.  Remember that the Canadian Parliament requires hard copies with real, not online, signatures, so we need people on the ground collecting paper-and-ink signatures.  It’s not easy but it is.  Think about where you run your errands:  every single outlet/store/business you deal with can display a copy of this petition to their customers/clients.  Make sure to leave your phone number or email addy so that curious or cautious people can contact you for more information.  What we need to tell people is that the drug “bute” is retained in horse carcasses and entrails (used in cosmetics, etc) and is deadly to humans, especially children.

Alex Atamanenko, honourable member of Parliament (MP) put forth Bill C-322 to the Parliament of Canada last week.  The Bill proposes to end horse slaughter on Canadian soil and to stop the export of horsemeat to foreign countries.  Why?  One:  horsemeat retains toxic drugs which are deadly to humans, especially children; two, the way in which horses are slaughtered in Canada is not only inhumane but also unsanitary.  Why should you care?  One: we export horsemeat to other countries (France, Belgium, Japan).  Horsemeat has been proven to be toxic to humans, especially children…so while you’ve set up monthly payments to provide for an underprivileged child in a foreign country, have you also ensured that that child is not being fed horsemeat?  Two:  would you put your dog down by bashing him over the head over and over again with a baseball bat?  If not, then go to the websites listed below to see how horses are “put down” before they’re rendered into meat in our country, in our country Canada…Canada, now known as the horse slaughter capital of North America.
