Fellow Horse and Animal Advocates,
This Wednesday, July 28, at 10 pm, Global TV airs “No Country for Animals”, a special documentary by Kevin Newman that examines Canada’s deplorable record on animal welfare and the people who are fighting to bring about much-needed change. We urge you to mark your calendars and be sure to catch this important documentary, which touches on crucial animal welfare challenges in Canada -- from abusive puppy mills to the overcrowded abattoir-bound trucks where livestock can go for days without food or water. Tell your friends, family members and co-workers to watch it too!
As you will see in this eye-opening documentary, the struggle to improve the lives of animals in the pet trade, agriculture, and other industries is an uphill battle. Canada’s toothless animal cruelty law dates back to 1892, and the few laws or regulations we have for livestock transport and slaughter are poorly enforced.
The program also profiles those brave people working to effect change to these conditions such as Twyla Francois who is the volunteer Central Region Director for the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition. Twyla also is Head of Investigations for CETFA, Canadians for the Ethical Treatment of Food Animals, and prior to this was an investigator with Animals Angels.
Please tune in to this revealing look at this thought-provoking subject.
Your friends at the CHDC,
