Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled
That horses are ordinarily kept and treated as sport and companion animals;
That horses are not raised primarily as food-producing animals;
That horses are commonly administered drugs that are strictly prohibited from being used at any time in all other food-producing animals destined for the human food supply; and
That Canadian horsemeat products that are currently being sold for human consumption in domestic and international markets are likely to contain prohibited substances.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to amend the Health of Animals Act and the Meat Inspection Act, thus prohibiting the importation or exportation of horses for slaughter for human consumption, as well as horsemeat products for human consumption.
