Toronto based animal welfare group, Animal Alliance of Canada http://www.animalalliance.ca/ is a supporter of Bill C-322 to end horse slaughter. They have conducted a letter writing campaign to Canada’s Members of Parliament, to back the CHDC’s mission to end horse slaughter and have received several responses. This interesting one comes from MP Rob Anders’ Constituency Assisant which must be shared with our supporters. Conservative MP Anders represents Calgary West, Alberta:
Thank you for your email which has been read by Rob Anders. Below in Italics is his personal response.
I think horses are beautiful animals just like I think the same of rabbits. Horses are domesticated like cattle and intelligent like dogs. Do dogs have certain protocols with regards to their ending of life? If so, do you wish similar protocols applied to horses? Would you apply the same protocols to cattle or rabbits? Canada doesn’t have a protocol on ending the life of a human fetus either. Would you apply similar standards to a human fetus?
