Bill C-571

My MP Con-servative Bruce Stanton voted against this bill…he does not care if people eat toxic horse meat…

Unfortunately, MP Alex Atamanenko’s Bill C-571 was defeated in the House of Commons today, with 102 votes in favour and 155 against.  All but two brave Conservative members towed the party line and took steps to vote against Bill C-571, and thus to vote against food safety and the humane treatment of horses.  Most Liberal and NDP members stood, as predicted, in support of the bill.  Our warmest thanks are extended to them, and to you, our supporters, who have spent countless hours lobbying for the enactment of this crucial piece of legislation.

It is important to remember that the horses have not lost.  A tremendous amount of public and political awareness has been raised as a result of MP Alex’s efforts.  2015 could easily see a welcome change in government, with a new party in power, and we’ll continue to work on political networking.  Until election time…
