Tweetstorm for Bill C-246 to Modernize the Animal Protections Act
This enactment amends the Criminal Code to consolidate and modernize various offences against animals.
The enactment amends the Fisheries Act to prohibit the practice of shark finning and the Wild Animal and Plant Protection and Regulation of International and Interprovincial Trade Act to prohibit the importation of shark fins that are not attached to the rest of the shark carcass.
It also amends the Textile Labelling Act to modify requirements in respect of animal hair and fur and cat and dog skin, hair and fur.
It also amends the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act to add products made in whole or in part of dog or cat fur or skin to Schedule 2 to that Act to prohibit those products from being imported into Canada or manufactured, advertised or sold in Canada.

Tweet your Member of Parliment and the Canadian government. 92% of us already want better animal cruelty legislation, but the government wants more consultation while animals continue to suffer.
Working together we can make this happen and protect the innocent who cannot protect themselves!
