Ban Foie Gras

Ontario needs to step up and ban the production and sale of foie gras. This practice is barbaric and immensely traumatic for the ducks. The conditions are filthy, crowded and there is a complete disregard for the pain and suffering inherent to foie gras production.

 

Here is an example of some of the cruelty in Quebec:

Ban Electric Prod Use in Animal Farming, Transport & Slaughter

Electric binary prods used on animals (any) are the equivalent to using a taser on humans, and should be banned. Not only are they cruel and inhumane, their use is known to be illegal and a crime against humanity (their extreme voltage/use violates the rights of "all animal objects", which include all living animals, of which humans are included) -- we must hold those in power and authority accountable to their own rules ...more »

Lift Pitbull Ban

Everybody just needs an animal to blame for irresponsible ownership.

In the 70's they wanted to ban German Shepherds, in the 80's it was Rottweilers, and now unfortunately the Pit Bulls have been chosen and lost.

Stop breeders from selling animals on Kijiji

There are enough neglected, abandoned animals in shelters that more do not need to be produced. This goes for all animals. I myself have 2 ball pythons, registered to my county, and I personally don't even believe they should be pets.
