Montreal News: March for World Animal Day

Montreal, Canada (RPRN) 09/29/10 — WHAT: Peaceful Rally & March for animals

WHY: Every year, World Animal Day (WAD) is celebrated worldwide. For the first time, Montreal will be participating in this special event. We wish to inform the public on the subject of the abuse of all species of animals, and to put pressure on our governments to amend our outdated animal rights laws.

WHERE: Parc Lafontaine at chalet Calixa-Lavallée, Montréal, QC

WHEN: Saturday, October 2, 2010 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm (Rain or Shine)

PARKING: Calixa-Lavallée chalet at Parc Lafontaine (free parking for 3 hours)

ABOUT US: Canadian Volunteers for the Protection of Animals (CVPA) is an organization of volunteers, fighting to save all sentient beings.

We want to educate the public regarding all animal abuse. We need to have our animal laws changed under the Criminal Code of Canada. Our actual laws under the Criminal Code of Canada date back to 1892. We need to have Quebec animal laws applied. We want harsher penalties for animal abusers. In Québec, we have a mere 20 inspectors. Of these twenty, only five enforce the Animal Health Protection Act (R.S.Q., c. P-42) (Loi sur la protection sanitaire des animaux (L.R.Q., c. P-42), ten are responsible for ensuring compliance with the Federal Criminal Code and municipal bylaws, four only enforce municipal bylaws and one enforces the act under R.S.Q., c. P-42, the Criminal Code, and municipal bylaws. This is not enough! Animal welfare is not being addressed as it should be and it is very much in jeopardy. Our government needs to do more and act quickly. Animals are still being abused, abandoned and thousands of innocent animals are dying annually.

We want to stop the cruelty to farm animals, the abolition of puppy mills, gas chambers, animals used in circuses, animal testing in laboratories, all forms of the cruel massacres of our sea creatures, as well as all forms of animal abuse for profit.

We firmly believe that all living creatures, sentient beings, have the right to a life that is peaceful and free from the cruelty at the hands of humans. We believe that if euthanasia is necessary, an animal should have nothing less than a dignified, painless death.

Organized by: Canadian Volunteers for the Protection of Animals (CVPA
