View Full Version : Photo Petition for Canadian Bill C-10B

09-25-2003, 11:24 AM

Thank you for supporting our work to date to pass tougher anti-cruelty legislation in Canada. By signing our online petition to pass Bill C-10B you have contributed to this important work and helped this important legislation pass third reading in the House of Commons...but our work is not done yet!

As you probably know, the Senate wants to make changes to Bill C-10B that will weaken the bill so significantly that it would be better to not have it pass at all. Currently the House of Commons is preparing to send Bill C-10B back to the Senate without accepting their changes. This is good news for the animals but now we have to send a clear message to the Senators why they must pass Bill C-10B, without their changes, before November, when Parliament will most likely be officially dissolved after the liberal leadership race is over. Animals are abused across Canada every day...we need to make sure that we have strong legislation to punish their abusers now!

The International Fund for Animal Welfare wants to show the Senators exactly why 80% of Canadians want this bill passed without change...our pets.

This year for Animal Action Week (October 4th - 11th, 2003) - let your pet take action for all abused and abandoned animals by sending us a photo of your beloved pet with the phrase PASS BILL C-10B WITHOUT CHANGE written on it and your signature. We will gather them all up - from supporters across the country and deliver them to the Senate. It will deliver a simple but powerful message of how important this Bill is to Canadians.

You can send your photos to 612 - 1 Nicholas Street, Ottawa, ON K1N 7B7 or digitally to bcartwright@ifaw.org. Please be sure that the photo is sized under 200KB.

If you want to see more about this idea visit www.ifaw.ca <http://www.ifaw.ca/>

In order to ensure we get photos from every corner of Canada, please take a moment to think of 10 people you know who love animals and forward this message on to them.

Thank you for continued support...together we can make a difference for abused animals across Canada.

For the animals,
Barbara Cartwright
Animal Action Week Co-ordinator

I just got this in my email box today. I was going to post it but you beat me to it!

Time to pose all the animals now... or, I could doctor up my anti-IAMS photos?
