Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • African wildlife populations are in rapid decline due in significant part to the practice of trophy hunting by fly in hunters from abroad;
  • African wildlife is being bred in captivity , habituated to humans , and unethically hunted for trophy within fenced enclosures , also known as "Canned Hunting "; and
  • Greed ,corruption, misinformation, and mismanagement is preventing the problem from being resolved within Africa.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada , call upon the House of Commons to enact a law or regulation within the calendar year banning the importation of all animal parts originating from Africa into Canada for the purpose of trophy (a trophy here is defined asany part of an animal’s anatomy used for the purpose of display other than for pure scientific reasons).
