The CHDC’s Eastern Region Director, Shelley Grainger, has created E-petition e-116, for citizens of Canada to call upon the House of Commons in Parliament to amend the Health of Animals Act and the Meat Inspection Act, thus prohibiting the importation or exportation of horses for slaughter for human consumption, as well as horse meat products for human consumption. Liberal MP Mark Holland, representing Ajax, Ontario, is e-116’s sponsor.
Until recently, paper versions with hand-written signatures were the only way to submit petitions to the Canadian Parliament. The government has now created a process for creating, gathering signatures and submitting e-petitions online.
E-petitions are published online for 120 days and a minimum of 500 signatures are required for certification and presentation in the House of Commons. It is then tabled for a government response.
Please show your support to end horse slaughter by signing e-petition 116 and sharing it with your friends and supporters. Knowing the majority of Canadians would like to see this industry ended, we know that we can easily surpass the 500 signatures required.
Thank you for your continued support.
For the horses,
Your friends at the CHDC
