Canada: Petition for Canadian Citizens ONLY – Stop the Live Air Export of Over 7,000 Horses to Japan for Slaughter and Human Consumption.

This petition is only open for CANADIAN citizens to sign; but it is very important – your support is required and please crosspost.

CALL-TO-ACTION! Just three weeks left to sign this Government of Canada e-petition calling for a stop to live air transport of horses for human consumption. The petition is sponsored by Beaches-East York Liberal MP, Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, and closes on June 19.


BACKGROUND INFO: In 2018, over 7,000 horses were air shipped from Canada to Japan for slaughter for human consumption.

Up to 3 to 4 horses are loaded into crates smaller than a single horse stall, frequently in contravention of Health of Animals Regulations and International Air Transport Association (IATA) standards.

Further, these beings are having to endure flights that are 10.5 to 13.5 hours long, during which time (and for the additional hours spent for ground transportation, loading into crates, and loading and unloading crates from planes), they have no access to food or water. Please help. This needs to stop.

Morality is indivisible.
What we would not do with humans, we must not do with animals.
The right to life, freedom, protection must belong to all kinds.
A just social order requires respect and protection of all animal species.
