Prime Minister Trudeau
has turned his back on people
who care about animals.
On October 5, 2016 Prime Minister Trudeau and his Cabinet voted against Bill C-246, the Modernizing Animal Protections Act.
Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, who is a Member of Parliament for Beaches-East York, introduced the bill that would have been the first substantive change to Canada’s animal protection laws in over a century.
Yes, in over a century! Canada has some of the worst animal protection legislation among developed countries. All the parties that have ever formed government are complicit, including previous Liberal governments. Passage of Bill C-246 would have changed all that but the Prime Minister and Cabinet have gone out of their way to stop all efforts to prevent animal cruelty. That has to end now.
Hunters, sport fishermen, the fur industry, agri-business are doing all they can to kill efforts to protect animals. And, Trudeau’s listening to them. Why? Votes.
