Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • Whales and dolphins are highly complex, intelligent, and social beings that roam vast distances in the ocean;
  • Scientific evidence shows that keeping them in display tanks causes them undue suffering; and
  • The practice of keeping them in display tanks is unjustifiably cruel.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to expeditiously pass Bill S-203, Ending the Captivity of Whales and Dolphins Act, tabled in the Senate by Senator Wilfred Moore.
