With the political climate heating up in Canada as we head toward an October election, it is important for everyone to become politically involved and ask their political representative their views on the issue of live shipping horses to Japan for slaughter. Engaging your federal representative is one of the most important actions you can take in helping the CHDC to change the current Canadian government’s attitude toward this abhorrent practice.

I have serious concerns about the export business of live horses being sent for slaughter to Japan by aircraft. The pertinent details are well-covered here, and I’m hoping that you will study the Access to Information findings listed.
Please act promptly to end this cruel, unsafe and illegal practice. I look forward to your reply.
