e-2700 (Animals)

E-petition
Initiated by Adrian Walton from Maple Ridge, British Columbia

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The recent mass importation of dogs into the Toronto International Airport has highlighted a major hole in the Canadian system for monitoring the commercial sales of animals;
  • The international aspect to this trade lends it to two major problems, outsourcing puppy mills to foreign countries and in a world of zoonotic diseases, the international trade in pet animals represents a great risk to both human and companion animal health; and
  • A quick search of the major classified websites show a collection of animals both legal and illegal for sale, with minimal oversight by federal agencies.
We, the undersigned, companion animals lovers, Veterinarians and just compassionate people, call upon the Government of Canada to ban the sale of animals through online classified websites like Kijiji and other social media platforms.
