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

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.
