April 5th is the 4th month anniversary of the Pasture to Plate: The True Cost of Canada’s Horsemeat Industry report from the CHDC.
During the last 4 months, the CHDC attempted to engage the CFIA with two Open Letters, the first on January 4, 2012 and the second on March 13, 2012 in order to get answers regarding the slaughterhouse at La Petite-Nations and the discrepancies from the investigation as well as information being released by the CFIA in the media and in emails.
To date, the CFIA has not addressed any of the CHDC’s concerns.
Once again, here is the link for the Pasture to Plate investigation. Also, please take the time to read the written report. Only then will you get a true understanding of the issues horses face at slaughter in Canada. And for our U.S. friends, please remember that if slaughterhouses re-open in your country, this is what awaits your horses no matter how hard the pro-slaughter side tries to pull the wool over an unsuspecting public.
It is imperative that we keep the pressure on the CFIA to obtain answers and to stop the atrocity of horse slaughter in Canada.
Please download a petition from either our web site or here on the blog to support Bill C-322. All the info you require has been provided in both places and in both English and French.
PLEASE HELP US HELP THEM.
This issue will not go away unless you, the taxpayer, demand that this inhumane industry is shut down forever. Thank you
