Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled
The Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC), which receives the majority of its funding from the Canadian government, has an inherent conflict of interest by also receiving funding from those that they investigate;
Self-governing and self-policing by the CCAC is not working sufficiently as far as it relates to animal lab testing facilities; and
The vast majority of Canadians oppose cruel and inhumane practices against animals.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1. Become an animal testing free Country by 2020;
2. Ensure that existing and future animals in labs be released alive and in good health instead of being euthanized until animal testing is phased out by 2020;
3. Ensure that ITR Labs of Montreal is independently investigated for violation of Canada Council on Animal Care guidelines; and
4. Fully fund the CCAC to prevent conflicts of interest and make the CCAC fully accountable to the Canadian government.
