Call To Review OSPCA Police Powers...

Here in Ontario, Canada, one of our MPPs (member of provincial parliament) is tabling a private members' bill calling for the removal of police powers from the authority of our provincial SPCA; this has long been an issue here in Ontario and throughout Canada as we have the OSPCA mandated by government as a registered private charity with the authority to lay charges both provincially under the Ontario Animal Welfare Act and federally under Canada's Criminal Code; there has long been…

Petition for tigers

This is an appeal to sign a petition for tigers.  See details at;

There are something like just 3,200 tigers left and they are being killed still for Chinese medicine and other products. Some are literally starved to death to make a wine, and the sight of such a beautiful animal so emaciated is indeed tragic.

A Bucket of Sand ~ Barbara DeGrande

How does one get through everyday life when it includes a continuing awareness of the abject misery to which we subject endless animals, children and humans? How do you live within your own skin when others of your species are so abjectly cruel? Over the holidays, when I was placed at a table next to a “ham,” I could not help but consider the pig that was the living being,…
