Harper’s Conservative style of government raises its ugly head again.
MP Alex Atamanenko introduced a private members bill C-322 some time ago banning horse slaughter in Canada. It was rejected, the bill was watered down and reintroduced as C-571 and only covered horses tainted by drugs from entering the food chain for human consumption.
When this bill came up on May 14, not a single Conservative supported it. Not surprising for a cold and unethical government. They will sacrifice anything for the economy of the country.
So become an activist and do whatever you can to stop horse slaughter in Canada. Go after federal and provincial governments and departments so B.C. can pull or stop issuing permits to horse slaughterhouses.
