As the House of Commons heads to a vote next week on his horse slaughter Bill C-571,  we present you with photos from MP Atamanenko’s Press Conference.  Alex was joined here by CHDC’s Executive Director Sinikka Crosland,  medical and toxicology expert Dr. Ray Kellosalmi,  and US political allies Victoria McCullough and Senator Joseph Abruzzo. 

Senator Abruzzo is a Democratic member of the Florida Senate, representing the 25th District, which includes most of Palm Beach County, since 2012.  Victoria McCullough is an avid horse lover and the only child of the founder of the US’s largest, privately held petroleum company,  Chesapeake Petroleum.

urgentWith a vote on the Bill only days away,  this is our final pitch to reach our MPs.  We suggest that you can send your personal message to your MP via the Humane Society International’s programmed webform,  which can be found here.

Please take action NOW – timing is critical and this is truly the 11th hour for the Bill.  Please SHARE this post widely on all social media platforms!

Thank you!

    Please, dear Canada, please pass Bill C-571. It is the right thing to do for every reason. So many have worked so hard to make this happen. It is about the safety and health of our people, our children, and our equines. Please be courageous for us and pass this bill.
