Equine Traceability being relaunched in Canada?

Heather Clemenceau has written another excellent article, this time focusing on the equine traceability program:

Under regulations of the Health of Animals Act, Canada has a mandatory identification program for cattle, bison and sheep. Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) have expanded that program to include horses.  According to AAFC, horses are functional livestock and are part of the national ID and traceability strategy for animal health and food safety reasons.

    I wrote two letters to Equine Canada many months ago, seeking a reply to my concerns, neither of which has been replied too.[ WHY SHOULD WE NOT BE SURPRISED]
    I wrote letters to the Liberal and NDP Agriculture critics seeking a reply, as too why our tax money is being used to attempt set up of a Horse tracibility program when a MAJORITY of Canadians are opposed to this predatory barbaric industry.Needless to say I am not holding my breath for any reply. It makes one wonder, when these M.P. know that a MAJORITY of Canadians are opposed, along with M.P. Atamanenko Bill c322, and the protest movement that exists ,WHY THE HELL DON,T THEY
    1- Respond to OUR concerns IN WRITING
    2 GET OFF THEIR BUTTS IN QUESTION PERIOD AND TARGET RICH TO KEEP THE ISSUE ALIVE

  3. I wrote to Equine Canada telling them of my absolute disgust with them and all horse organizations in Canada for their support of horse slaughter. This initiative is nothing more than a fast track for horses into the slaughter pipeline. I left it with Equine Canada to prove themselves by taking a stand against horse slaughter and denying CFIA any medical information on our horses. If they REALLY want to help our horses re: infectious diseases, this shouldn’t be a difficult choice for them. Don’t hold your breath!
