e-4439 (Animals)

Initiated by Audrey Weiss from Winnipeg, Manitoba

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • Recently, the media has reported about the horrible condition in which dogs were sold via an online auction house in Manitoba. This case has raised concerns for Canadians;
  • The federal government's website states "The Criminal Code of Canada prohibits anyone from willfully causing animals to suffer from neglect, pain or injury";
  • Provinces and territories also have responsibility for a number of issues related to animal welfare;
  • The CFIA has scope over regulating the humane transportation of animals, and they also work with provinces, territories and stakeholders on related issues;
  • Canadian farmers and animal owners across the country make important efforts every day to keep their animals and livestock safe; and
  • Canadians believe instances of potential animal abuse and neglect must be addressed.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to always ensure they uphold their federal mandate with respect to animal welfare issues, and work with provinces, territories and stakeholders when needed on these issues.
