There is no difference using or eating a dog or a cow. We do similar in our own countries to other animals who have the same ability to suffer, feel pain and fear death as dogs and cats. They all are emotiomal beings who have a right not to be used as property and exploited. We need to start recognising the horrors that our own lifestyles inflict on other individual animals, whether they are a pig, cat, human, cow, fish etc. We are right to be appalled by what China is doing and Canada's...

We need to start recognising the horrors that our own lifestyles inflict on other individual animals, whether they are a pig, cat, human, cow, fish etc. We are right to be appalled by what China is doing and Canada's support, but need to drop our speciesism and see that, unless we are vegan, we also paying for violence in our own societies (eg. in the egg industry, male chicks are commonly disposed of by putting them into grinders alive). We have been conditioned to see it differently but it is the same ethical issue.

Marie, I agree. However the suffering in being skinned alive is horrific. As for meat-eaters, they do not want to know the truth about what they pay others to do.They should watch an undercover video, such as "Meet your Meat" or "Farm to Fridge". We are a speciesist society (but we "love animals."). Howard Lyman said that if you ever have a chance to go into a slaughterhouse, don't!) Howard Lyman was a 4th generation feed lot operator who became a vegetarian.

Change happens over time. There is no doubt that Canada will eventually introduce laws similar to those in the U.S. where the labelling of type and origin of all imported fur is a legal requirement. But public pressure MUST be brought to bear. It is the hope of the majority of decent humans who regard all animals as sentient beings that eventually, ALL FUR TRADE WILL BE OUTLAWED....and I have no doubt that time will come.

In the meantime, we take baby steps...and each small victory is a step in the right direction. Be patient, but be determined. Sign petitions, send emails, share with friends, and make your disapproval, displeasure and disgust at the Chinese meat trade slaughtering cats and dogs for food, and at the opportunistic behaviour of the Canadian government to sanction the import of "cheap" dog and cat furs as a bi-product of that meat trade, ABUNDANTLY CLEAR. IT SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED, JUST AS THE CULL OF SEALS FOR FUR SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED, AND ONLY BY MAKING A LOT OF NOISE WILL THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT LISTEN.......THE GOVERNMENTS SERVE THE PEOPLE, AND THE PEOPLE MUST SPEAK. Thankyou, Kx

It's not a slur on Canadians....there are different attitudes around the world, even different states within USA have different laws on hunting etc. It's about us, and what we find acceptable. Once upon a time, it was O.K. to have slaves, or for women to be owned by their husbands....everything changes gradually, and for the better, so long as people speak out. Kx

Disgusting! Don't buy anything with fur period. Even the "fake" looking fur trim has been found to be dog and cat fur. I read an article about Rocca Wear jackets being tested that where made in China - Rocca Wear thought it was purchasing fake fur..the company ceased sales of the jacket once it was found out

DO THESE PEOPLE KNOW WE'R LIVING IN 2012? THIS IS SO UNACCEPTABLE AND ITS UNBELIEVABLE TO KNOW SUCH CRUELTY STILL EXISTS TODAY............

China is a terrible country! I try to buy nothing from them! There are many alternatives to imported Chinese goods! I will especially not buy pet food from China, even if it is only processed there! Canada is another country that is not a good job insofar as animal cruelty laws. They are an environmental disaster and, given the seals, the fur, etc., this is a country that should be heavily boycotted!

Canada needs a good rethink.... but hey! Aren't they the country that allow & encourage the clubbing of baby seals to death for their skins?
