Target: Simon Kennedy, Deputy Minister of Health Canada
Goal: Thank Canada for ending year-long pesticide tests in which dogs are forced to eat and breath the toxins.
Health Canada has announced that they will be ending their mandatory year-long pesticide tests on dogs. Since the 1980s, dogs have been forced to eat pesticide-laced food or breathe in pesticide fumes every day for a year. After the year of experimentation is done, the dogs are killed and dissected.
Health Canada has come to the conclusion that these tests are not necessary to study the effects of pesticides. The U.S. came to this conclusion in nine years ago and thankfully more and more countries are ending the testing as well. The choice to discontinue these tests will save hundreds of lives every year.
Sign this petition and thank Canada Health for saving countless lives and ending the cruel, unnecessary testing.
Dear Mr. Kennedy,
Recently, Canada Health has announced that it will no longer require year-long pesticide tests on dogs. This decision will save hundreds of dogs every year. Since the 1980s, dogs were forced to eat pesticide-laced food or breathe in pesticide fumes every day for a year. After dealing with this agony for a year, the dogs would be killed and dissected.
Thank you for deciding to spare countless lives in the years to come. It is a huge step forward for animals and hopefully more countries will follow in your footsteps.
[Your Name Here]
