Monday, May 2nd: election day. Did you vote in the advance polls? Will you vote on Monday? It is so easy not to and so important when you do.
Try thinking of your vote as being a gift to the animals. After the election, the struggle will begin anew to improve legislation regarding animal cruelty. And right now the politicians are listening to us. If they hear us now, they will hear us when we call for a new Bill.
Now is the time to ask politicians what they will do to protect animals in Canada. The candidates are listening and the animals need you to speak on their behalf. Now is the time to demand that politicians update our old animal cruelty laws and take the necessary steps to better protect all animals.
The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA Canada) has streamlined the contact process. When you go to their website you can find political party responses to WSPA’s recent survey. Which party (s) care about animals?
As well, from the WSPA site you can contact your MP candidates and your local paper with letters that are easy to personalize. We need to speak for our animal friends. Please take a moment and write a letter. Make animals matter. Go to www.voteforanimals.ca and
