e-3763 (Animals)

Initiated by Teresa Knight from Union bay, British Columbia

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • The European Parliament voted to phase out the use of animals in research on September 15, 2021, for good reason;
  • Animal models do not closely resemble human biological systems, and thus produce errors in findings;
  • The use of animals in experiments involves cruelty and a lack of respect and compassion for the lives of animals, which citizens increasingly object to; and
  • Using animals in research can cause unintended pandemics.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to follow the lead of the European Parliament and commit to phasing out the use of animals in all research, with a timeline of achieving this the shortest possible.
