Ban the Import of Dog and Cat Fur in Canada


To: Prime Minister Stephen Harper

In Canada, cats and dogs are our beloved friends and life-long companions. We develop an incredible bond with these animals, receiving from them perhaps more than we give! Loving them as we do, one would think that they would never be killed for something as unnecessary as fur - like for a cat's toy 'mouse', or for needless trim on the hood of a jacket.

However, unbeknownst to most of us, products made from dog or cat fur are out there and are being welcomed through our borders, into Canada. LEGALLY. And fur sold in Canada is NOT even legally required to be labelled!

Please, I urge you to abolish this law and follow what the United States Government has done by following their example. In addition to the US ban -Italy, France, Denmark, Greece, Belgium, Switzerland and Australia have also banned this disgusting trade.

"The trade of dog and cat fur products is ethically and aesthetically abhorrent to United States citizens. Consumers have a right to know if products offered for sale contain dog or cat fur and to ensure that they are not willing participants in this gruesome trade."

Please, be humane about this and follow what other countries have done.
