We stand with all those across the world who calls for Volkswagen and others to stop animal testing for their cars.
We would encourage every shelter and humane organization in Canada to sign up for the Food for thought campaign, especially those operating under the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) name. Furthermore, we demand that the Montreal SPCA, which is the rightful owner of the SPCA trademark in Canada, prevent shelters dedicated to small companions animals while supporting cruelty to other animals from using the SPCA trademark so as not to mislead Canadians into supporting organizations that might go against their wish to truly prevent the cruelty to animals and not just small companion animals.
We encourage all schools everywhere to truly teach their students where their food comes from, but to do so in a fair and realistic manner that shows all aspect of food production. For example, by bringing them slaugtherhouses or showing them slaughterhouse footage not just pig cuddling in the school backyard which clearly is not representative of a vast majority of a pig's life currently in the food chain. Doing so is misleading at best and fails to educate by presenting a false view of food production in our current society.
So far this is affecting milk sold in Atlantic Canada. However, for those who are still consuming dairy now might be a great time to try some delicious dairy alternative like almond, cashew, coconut, soy or oat milk while they figure out why animal abuse is off tasting.
We congratulate Norway in banning their fur industry and encourage Canadians to demand no less from our government.
It is unfortunate that we cannot muster the will at home to enact policies protecting animals in various industry like fishing and fur trade. Nevertheless, we thank other countries for putting pressure on Canada and giving us an opportunity to raise to the challenge of being more compassionate. We stand with you in demanding that all these cruel and abusive practice stops.
We strongly support the polluter pays principle that is so prevalent in the rest of our society. There are no reasons that the whole of society should bear the cost of harmful behavior like pollution, climate change, alcohol, tobacco, animal agriculture and others so that corporations can have disproportionate profit because our rules and regulations are outdated and do not properly hold responsible those who create negative externalities.
