All animals in Canada, well globally are suffering at the hands of humans. The cycle of abuse must stop and change must happen. Our local, domestic and international government leaders must do the job they were elected to do and protect along with change the "business as usual" ideolgy that has been going on far to long. Animals in my opinion deserve the same protection humans have and it is up to us to have regulations, statutes along with laws created and strengthened. No animal should ever have to suffer for a human and our Canadian government must become global leaders in this protection.
