You might be wearing your Pet !!





Friends, family and pet lovers;





Please pass this around;





if at minimum to educate people that this is going on. My petition is at www.petitiononline.com (I will send you the actual link)





I have basically copied this from Heather Mills McCartneys website to get the message out. Just as she is doing I want to get this petition around and then send the signatures to our Prime Minister and the International Minister of Trade to ban the selling of cat and dog fur in Canada. (We do not have a ban on this yet) Please visit her site or the Humane Societys site to see the gruesome pictures.


Quote The undercover investigation into the production and sale of cat and dog fur began nearly 8 years ago with Humane Society of the US sending an investigator into China to determine how extensive the trade was. It turned out to be a staggering 2 million cats and dogs raised under cruel conditions and then skinned alive, strangled or stabbed solely for their furs and skins. There is no cultural aspect of this - it is purely for money.


Asian merchants bragged that they could fraudulently label any item to confuse consumers, dye it to appear as though it was faux fur (or even mink) or not label it at all.


The US banned the import, export, sale and production of cat and dog fur in the US in 2002 -- when evidence was shown that dog fur was being sold on parka jackets at the Burlington Coat Factory and on cat figurines on sale at Hallmark. Both retailers had no idea the items contained real fur.


Chemical analyses done on a toy mouse and a cat figurine from China which children might play with - found excessive levels of chromium which may affect children's DNA. The testing was done by a certified lab in the Netherlands where the items were sold on the market. At holiday time in the EU, consumers are at greater risk of purchasing (unwittingly) these items since dog and cat fur can be found as lining in ski boots and gloves, trim on parkas, full coats, covering sleeping cat figurines, as hair bows (dyed to look like faux fur) and a host of other items - including some dog chew toys!


There is no labeling law nor would one be sufficient - since Chinese merchants have great skill in making up names for the fur and/or copying well known labels.





IN CONCLUSION: there is absolutely no reason why Canada cannot ban this fur and do it immediately. Asian merchants told Humane Society undercover investigators that they would give up the business immediately if there was a ban rather than risk high end exports being banned as a punishment. They do this only because there is no law prohibiting it. At stake is animal cruelty, toxic items and consumer and retailer fraud.


The US has banned it, Australia has banned it and so have Denmark, France, Italy, Belgium and Greece - but until there is a full UK (Canadian) ban 2 million cats and dogs will suffer and the trade will continue. (www.heathermillsmccartney.com)








The International Trade Minister (Hon James S. Peterson) has said that we cant ban the selling of cat and dog fur because they dont know if in fact it is being sold here and there are no tests to prove it is or not.





I WILL BUY CLOTHING ITEMS MYSELF AND PAY FOR THE SPECIES TEST UNTIL I FIND AN EXAMPLE THAT THIS IS HAPPENING !





Our pets are members of our families. (I have seen some of you sign a Christmas card on your pets behalf)





They have been proven to be good for our health, we buy cloths, toys and accessories for them. We protect and love them as they do us; unconditionally. I just dont think its right that we might be wearing our pets !





Thank you for your support.
