Sign the Petition to

GLOBAL TV/SHAW MEDIA

It has come to our attention that, as of December 30, 2012 - both GLOBAL TV and SHAW MEDIA have decided to drop all sport hunting programming from its Saturday morning block of outdoors shows.

We would like to send congratulations and KUDOS to both GLOBAL TV and SHAW MEDIA for this decision and fully expect each to live by the promise of dropping these shows.

We feel there is absolutely NO reason for the killing animals on television stictly for "entertainment"value or ratings and are impressed that GLOBAL TV and SHAW MEDIA. have decided to take this brave step. It is our fervent hope that this will start a proactive trend in broadcasting communities globally!

It is our understanding that threats of boycotts and a letter-writing campaign has started on behalf of certain hunting groups. We are asking that you hold fast to your forward thinking idea of removing these barbaric shows and to also show GLOBAL TV and SHAW MEDIA the vast amount of supporters they have in making this decision!

Again, KUDOS to Global TV and Shaw Media!!

Signed,

How this will help

We need people to show their support to both Global TV and Shaw Media in their forward=-thinking decision to remove sport hunting shows from their 2013 lineup.

Too often animals have been abused,...

We need people to show their support to both Global TV and Shaw Media in their forward=-thinking decision to remove sport hunting shows from their 2013 lineup.

Too often animals have been abused, torturned and killed in the name of "entertainment".

We find there is absolutely *no benefit* in the airing of these shows other than to promote an outdated and barbaric practise of killing animals solely for pleasure.

Many pro-hunting groups and organizations are starting letter writing campaigns and threatening to boycott/pressure Global TV and Shaw Media to return these shows to their lineups.

Let Global TV and Shaw Media know there are a great many inthe community who applaud their decision and who ask that they "stick to their guns" and not fall to the pressure of a few.

Do *you* want yourself or your children subjected to watching the killing of animals for profit? Do *you* want to be forced to subscribe to and pay for a channel that you do not endorse or agree with?

SPEAK FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES!
