All I want for Christmas is to end horse slaughter. All I want for Christmas is for Bill C-322 to become law. During the course of time, horses have played an important role alongside mankind in its evolution throughout the ages. They still do. PLEASE respect the horse by ending the barbaric act of slaughter upon them, please!
I have cancer again. I may lose part of my vagina; part of my bladder; part of my colon and my kidney; I may lose my life. I wrote my wish today because I will be enduring yet another procedure, this time a surgery, one of probably many – so I wanted to make sure my words are heard. Cancer is cruel and ugly and so is the horse slaughter industry. At this time you would think that my wish is for my life but my wish is for Bill C-322 to become law!
Ever since I can remember I loved the horse. Even before I saw a horse in real life; even before I touched a horse I admired it and was drawn to it from afar on television and movies. I said to myself as a child one day I will do something with the horse. One day I will be with the horse. All I want for Christmas is to have Bill C-322 become law!
When my mother died many years ago from Cancer I began my journey to find the horse and find where my purpose was in this life with the horse. I found myself at school taking a horse management course; I found myself working for a horse veterinarian; I found myself working to help the Standardbred horse. The Standardbred horse being the most vulnerable of all horses here in Ontario at risk for slaughter; the horse more often purchased by kill buyers at one of the largest horse meat auctions the Ontario Livestock Exchange in Kitchener. But when I found myself with the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition I found my home. The CHDC’s mission is to end horse slaughter; I found my purpose. All I want for Christmas is to end horse slaughter. All I want for Christmas is for Bill C-322 to become law!
On my little farm are two horses that I love dearly. I accomplished a dream and have adopted two beautiful horses that I hug every day and that I admire every day and that I call my own every day. My future is uncertain. I promised them that they will rest in peace at home. I can only hope that I can rest in peace knowing that ALL horses will be safe; ALL horses will be able to rest in peace at home as well. All I want for Christmas is to have Bill C-322 become law!
During the course of time, horses have played an important role alongside mankind in its evolution throughout the ages. They still do. Why is Canada taking the horse that has spent its life serving human beings and most likely known love and care; why is Canada taking the horse not raised for meat that has been given illegal drugs and slaughtering it for meat? Why? PLEASE respect the horse by ending the barbaric act of slaughter upon them! Please help Bill C-322 become LAW!
Please help take the CANCER out of Canada and help our horses by ending their slaughter. If my story; my wish has touched you, please help the horse by donating to the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition so that they can continue their work at ending horse slaughter; so that they can continue to develop horse protection initiatives. Please help Member of Parliament Alex Atamanenko pass his Bill C-322; please help MP Atamanenko make Bill C-322 LAW! Thank You.
For the love of my horses,
