The cost of keeping horse slaughter going in Canada

Canadian Horse Defence Coalition's Blog

Paint in holding pen LPNHave you ever wondered how much it costs the Federal government to keep the horse slaughter industry operational in Canada?

Thanks to the efforts of MP Alex Atamanenko, we now have the answer.  Inspections enabling the slaughter of our horses to continue are costing over one million dollars annually.

As a taxpayer, whether you want to or not, you are helping to fund this industry.

Please read the question and the government’s response here.  The horses need constituents and taxpayers to lobby on their behalf.  Don’t delay – contact your Member of Parliament now and ask them to support Bill C-322!

Explain that funding horse slaughter is not an acceptable use of your  tax dollars and you want this industry to end.

For the horses.
