After reading a few headlines this week, I feel like I’m living in the Roman Coliseum in the days of the emperors, when entire species were exterminated for the entertainment of the mindless, ravening masses.
Dogs burnt alive in arson on car
Dogs starved, cannibalizing
Animals die in fire, arson suspected
500 animals found in car without water, 75 dead
Dozens of cattle and bison found dead, starving
Dog left in trash can, almost crushed by compactor
and too many more….
A sterling example of why not all professional sports figures should be role models for youngsters….
NBA player fights dogs, abuses animals, gets off lightly and still plays in NBA
The federal Conservatives are turning tail and supporting a lame-a** Senate bill on anti-animal cruelty that does absolutely nothing, instead of effective legislation that adequately defines and punishes animal cruelty. The Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has a good press release on it.
Write the Prime Minister and the Justice Minister to let them know it’s time Canada moved its anti-cruelty legislation out of the dark ages and into the light.

Find your federal MP and let him or her know that thinking Canadians are sickened by animal cruelty, and that it is time the laws were made adequate for conviction and punishment. You can find you MP by your postal code…scroll down to the bottom of the screen if the top third appears blank.
It’s past time to make noise on behalf of those who can’t speak for themselves.
