Urgent Call to Support Bill C-322 and End Horse Slaughter!
September will soon be here and after the summer recess MP Alex Atamanenko will choose a bill to debate on – a bill that stands the best chance of succeeding. We want him to choose Bill C-322, an Act that would stop the slaughter of horses in Canada as well as their shipment to slaughter in other countries.
There are two ways in which you can help at this time:
1) Contact your Member of Parliament and tell him/her that you are seeking their support for Bill C-322. Contact information for Canadian MPs can be found here.
Make sure to copy MP Alex Atamanenko and MP Malcolm Allen, NDP Critic for Agriculture and Agri-Food, on your correspondence:
firstname.lastname@example.org;email@example.com. Your action will communicate to MP Atamanenko and MP Allen that the public staunchly supports Bill C-322. We want this crucial Act to move forward!
2) Recently, Toronto City Council unanimously passed a motion in support of Bill C-322. This precedent-setting move, initiated by Councillor Michelle Berardinetti, can clearly pave the way for additional municipalities to follow suit. No matter where you reside in Canada, you have the power to help horses at a municipal level. Please don’t delay – contact your City Council and ask them to support MP Alex Atamanenko’s Bill C-322.
Please do this NOW. We will soon follow up with additional actions showing provincial support that you will be able to take. But let’s work federally and on municipal levels first.
Can we count on you?
Thank you, on behalf of the horses!
