Many varieties of animals are now cherished as beloved family members. To their owners, whether they are lonely singles or 'empty nest' seniors, these animals are referred to as 'my baby' and the owners become 'mom' or 'dad' to them. The obvrse side of that coin is the socio-pathic personality who should never be entrusted with the life of any living creature because they are incapable of valuing any but their own life. They are adept at deception and finding loopholes in the law when...

Many varieties of animals are now cherished as beloved family members. To their owners, whether they are lonely singles or 'empty nest' seniors, these animals are referred to as 'my baby' and the owners become 'mom' or 'dad' to them. The obvrse side of that coin is the socio-pathic personality who should never be entrusted with the life of any living creature because they are incapable of valuing any but their own life. They are adept at deception and finding loopholes in the law when shopping for victims. Ownership of an animal by them is usually a dearh sentence, sometimes preceded by years of torture or neglect. Let us finally come out of the 18th century when all animals were mere chattels and property and into the 21st century and create and enforce laws that place real value on life, any supply cosequences for cruelty that fit the crime, whether the animal is raised for food, or is a beloved family member. They deserve no less.

Animals are innocent and are beautiful companions. Pet ownership is a privelidge . As such, adoption must have a screening process ( psychological, criminal etc.) . Furthermore, animals should never be bred for profit ( money, somehow, corrupts) .

The persons who are abusive to animals are also abusive to humans -- disrespecting life in all its forms. Neglect of and cruelty to animals is a heinous crime by those indifferent to suffering. Society needs to react to this as strongly as possible for the good of all life on Earth. https://www.amazon.com/author/elizabetheiler

Canada must stop animal torture and slaughtering them in a very cruel way.
STOP, STOP, STOP.
And also steel trapping...

The federal government still doesn't get it! Some of the biggest and best killers started out on animals, wake up Rob Nicholson! Just because animals don't vote or pay taxes does not mean that they are expendable.

Lenient punishment for animal abuse sends a message loud and clear that animals are unimportant which couldn't be farther from the truth. We depend on healthy ecosystems for our survival and it is the animals within those environments that sustain them. All animals whether they are wild or domesticated or farm animals are deserving of our respect and our care. Canada needs to follow the lead of Israel who first banned all fur and now prohibits animal testing and the import of any product...

Israel is making huge strides in animal rights and so should we starting with the banning of trophy hunting of bears and other precious animals in Canada!!!!
