    I would like to see pisted what is being done to legislate the Mennonites who are well known for their animal cruelty, neglect and abuse. It is time Canadians started seeing and doing something sbout what affects us as Canadians. Why arent the horse owners providing the needed water to their horses. Its the law for Canadians to care properky for their animals. Are these Mennonites Canadians governed by Canadian laws? If not, why not. We Canadians want each citizen to follow the laws that we decide on and wewant thenones tthat dont abide by our laws to be investigated and brought to task by the law that is supported by all of our taxes. So who is going to be watering the horses that are being exploited and abused by the Mennonites?

    1. Giving the horses access to water is an interim measure strictly for their welfare, not to help neglectful owners. We do want to educate the Mennonites about proper treatment of animals but – in the meantime – we want to do something for the immediate well-being of the horses.

    2. The most important issue is that the horses have water. Hopefully this will be seen as a positive reach-out to the Mennonites.
