Sign New E-Petition to Halt Air Shipments of Horses to East Asia for Slaughter

The CHDC’s Eastern Region Director, Shelley Grainger, has started E-Petition 2037 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. Liberal MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, representing Beaches/East York, Ontario, is e-2037‘s sponsor.

The e-petition is published until June 19, 2019, and the CHDC is aiming to exceed 10,000 signatures. Shelley’s last similar e-petition gathered over 8,600 signatures. You must be a Canadian citizen in order to sign and you will be asked to confirm your signature by email.

Everyone please take a moment to help stop air shipments of horses exported for human consumption by signing E-Petition 2037.

    Horses are not for shipping and eating it’s brutal and cruel . They need to find alternative to eating dogs , cats , horses , and every single insect they can find . They seem to eat anything that moves

  16. Carol Broody · ·

    Since you have the power to grant them life and freedom – then DO so because horses are humans greatest animal partner. Set them free from and protect them.

    Stop shipping animals to their death. Can’t we treat these start to understand they are beings just like us. This going to end. You can find something else to do and stop living off the backs of animals or you could find your own way to make a buck because animal agriculture is going, going , gone.

      We are a society of altruists governed by psychopaths.
      Stop this cruelty!

  24. Barb Burton · ·

    Put an end to this horrific treatment of horses. The majority of Canadians do not agree with this torture and murder of innocent animals.

    1. Wanda Terry · ·

      Barbaric and inhumane industry

  25. Lynne Smith · ·

    The complete disregard for the welfare of these horses has been going on for so many years . It is criminal that charges have never been laid.

  26. Helena Goodwin · ·

    Please end this abuse!

  27. Free the horse’s now!

  28. Cindy Lucia · ·

    Please stop this inhumane treatment of horses. They are not meant for human consumption.

  29. Irish Quinn · ·

    The whole process from start to horrific finish is barbaric. No living creature and sentient being should be subjected to such heartless handling and abject terror. No Nation that considers itself fair and just should be involved in the obscene set of events that await these horses.

  30. Alexis Sourasky · ·

    Please end horse slaughter!!

  31. Robin Brunet · ·

    Yes, an atrocity indeed; but as a horse lover and horse owner of many years standing, I would like to point out that one source of this problem is the multitude of horse owners who treat their animals as if they’re garden ornaments and commit abuse by neglect, which to me means doing nothing with them (and they are perfectly fine abandoning their horses for auction when it suits them economically). As far as I’m concerned, these bastards are just as bad as the thugs who actually transport horses overseas for food.

    STOP MASS SLAUGHTER .HORSES GIVE THERE SPIRIT FOR US ..THEY HAVE WON WARS WITH US ..THEY ARE NOT ANIMALS WE EAT .STOP THE ABUISE .

      Stop the madness of killing horses for food.

  33. Joanne Hastie · ·

    I’m not asking for shipping methods to improve. I’m demanding that Canada stops shipping horses anywhere for slaughter. Domestic slaughter is also unacceptable. Horses are not food. This is a terrible betrayal of the horse-human bond.

    1. Lon Laval · ·

      This is barbaric . It’s almost 2020 ….

  34. Jacqueline Whitney · ·

    Stop Canadian brutality of horses. Discusting people who would slaughter horses and burros for food.

  35. Please stop this madness!

    As an American, I’m not allowed to sign this petition. However, it is OUR AMERICAN HORSES & OTHER EQUINES CANADA IS SENDING TO SLAUGHTER IN Asia on live transports!!! Canada also SLAUGHTERS AMERICAN EQUINES on Canadian soil, in CRUEL, BLOODY, BARBARIC ways. STOP THE MADNESS!! Americans have a right to have a voice in these matters!!!

  44. Natalie Put · ·

    This is barbaric and needs to end!!

  45. Lucie Tsai · ·

    The level of cruelty involved in the live export of Canadian horses to Japan is unacceptable. This is a business based on incredible suffering and violence. No living being deserves to be treated like this.

  46. Cherylann Blaikie · ·

    Please stop this barbaric practice! Now!!

  47. Barbara lilly · ·

  50. Nancy Boswell · ·

  51. jacinta deveaux · ·

    For the love of God if it were not for these animals we would not exist. Who the hell do you think help us feed ourselves in the 1800’s. These very animals we are sentencing to death. If were not for their ancestors we would not have survived but yet we continue to let them down. Shame on us!

  52. Kathy boland · ·

    This horrific practice needs to stop now!

  53. Candi Bloch · ·

  55. Terry-Ann · ·

    This is sickening and needs to stop.

  56. Stop the shipment of live horses. Ridiculous and cruel.

  57. Karen Erickson-Adams · ·

    To be shipping horses in crates too small, too many horses to a crate, no protection from extreme temperatures, exposed to the pollution and noise of the planes, many hours cooped up without food and water is WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!
    IT IS CRUEL AND ABUSIVE!
    THIS MUST STOP!

  58. STOP ALL SHIPMENTS OF HORSES FOR FOOD NOW!@#
