Canada's provincial horse councils and federations support horse slaughter and eating horse meat. Many horse people who are members of these organizations in order to compete, become certified professionals, and so forth, do not agree with horse slaughter and find eating horse meat repulsive and unacceptable.
This petition intends to change the distribution of membership dues collected by the provincial horse councils/federations so that a portion of the dues - being 25% - will be donated at the member's request upon membership sign-up or renewal to any Equine Welfare organization or horse rescue in Canada that the member chooses. Currently, the provincial horse councils / federations have have banded together into a corporation called the "Horse Welfare Alliance Of Canada (HWAC)" which campaigns for horse slaughter in Canada and the eating of horse meat.
I do not agree with and do not want to see my membership dues support the aims of HWAC as regards horse slaughter or eating horse meat. By signing this petition, I demand that my provincial horse council donates 25% of my yearly membership dues to the organization or charity/horse rescue that I choose which I believe best represents my beliefs in support of the interests of equine wellbeing and longetivity.
This petition was created by the Equine Right To Life (ER) movement, Canada, a Horse Pro-Life movement of Canadian horse owners
and supportive individuals that places a horse's wellbeing and welfare
throughout the horse's life above profit or unacceptable, cruel methods to end a horse's life.
Horse owners and Canadians will have the right to donate a portion of their membership dues to horse rescues or other benevolent organizations rather than their dues being used to support horse slaughter and eating horse meat.
