The CHDC’s Eastern Region Director, Shelley Grainger, has started another E-petition e-1699 for Citizens of Canada to call upon the House of Commons in Parliament to halt air shipments of horses exported for human consumption, due to the ongoing violation of Canadian and IATA regulations. Again, Liberal MP Mark Holland, representing Ajax, Ontario, is e-1699’s sponsor.
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. They are then tabled for a government response. You must be a Canadian citizen in order to sign and you will be asked to confirm your signature by email.
Do you want to tell the Canadian government to end live horse shipments? Then let them know by signing e-petition 1699 and sharing it with your friends and supporters.

Thank you for your continued support!
For the horses,
Your friends at the CHDC
