Petition to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development

Whereas:
  • More than 470,000 farm animals have died in barn fires in Canada between January 2015 and November 2017;
  • It is very difficult to evacuate animals who are contained in cages and stalls from a burning barn;
  • Barn fires are usually attended by rural fire departments whose response time is longer than those in urban areas and barns are often engulfed in flames on their arrival;
  • The National Research Council is currently updating the National Farm Building Code; and
  • The current plan for the updated National Farm Building Code does not include protection for animals.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development to direct the National Research Council to revise its policy and add protection of animals from fire as an objective in the updated National Farm Building Code.
