From The Persian Horse Blog

Member of Parliament Canada, Alex  Atamanenko, of the New Democratic Party, feels that if he can present Parliament with 10,000 Signatures Protesting Horse Slaughter in Canada, and Supporting his Bill  C-322, An Act to amend the Health of Animals Act and the Meat Inspection Act (slaughter of horses for human consumption), thus prohibiting the importation or exportation of horses for slaughter for human consumption as well as horsemeat products for human consumption, that he will be able to have the bill adopted into LEGISLATION.

Click HERE for more information about the progress of C-322.

We only need 2,000 more signatures to reach the 10,000, which Mr. Atamanenko feels will be significantly influential.

From Care2

Every day, trucks carry horses hundreds of miles in cramped, sweltering quarters across the border from the United States to Canada. After the ones that survive the trip wait for hours at auction without hay or water, slaughterhouses shoot each between the eyes with a .22 calibre pistol.

Horse slaughter may be illegal in the United States, but both the U.S. and Canada play horrifying roles in the $70 million industry. Farms across America raise thousands of horses every year for shipment, slaughter, and export to Europe and Asia.

Many of these farms feed horses a steady diet of medication specifically labeled as hazardous for human consumption. Still, Canadian slaughterhouses sell the arguably contaminated meat at up to $12 a pound.

The horse slaughter industry is both inhumane and risky to public health. Call on Canadian Parliament to ban horse slaughter in Canada and stop the cycle of cruelty.
