On October 16, 2013 Member of Parliament, Libby Davies (NDP, Vancouver-East), introduced Bill C-296. If passed this bill would ban the import and sale of dog and cat fur, and would make labeling fur products mandatory.
Goal: 175,000 Progress: 122,387
Sponsored by: The Animal Rescue Site

In some parts of the world, cats and dogs are raised and brutally skinned for their beautiful fur. The Canadian Government is afraid that a ban on these furs would endanger international sales of Canadian products made of baby seal skins. So it allows imported clothing made of dog and cat fur, and does not even require the fur to be labeled.

Nobody wants fashion at the price of pets’ lives. Tell Canada’s Prime Minister and Agriculture Minister to ban imported dog and cat furs. Sign & tell a friend today!

Dear The Right Honourable Stephen Harper and The Honourable Gerry Ritz:

You should be ashamed of Canada's lax standards for imported products! Please listen to both Canadian and worldwide opinion and ban the importation and sale of products containing dog and cat fur, similar to the actions already taken by the European Union and the United States.

Selling garments made from the skins of dogs and cats goes against the wishes of almost all Canadian citizens, yet in an internal memo your government opposed the ban because it weakens Canadian efforts to promote the sale of seal skins to other countries. Because Canadian law does not require the content of fur garments to be disclosed on the label, Canadian consumers have no way of knowing when they are purchasing products made from the skins of cats and dogs.

Allowing Canadian consumers to unknowingly purchase imported products made from cat and dog fur in defense of the sealing industry is unconscionable and horrifying.

Please immediately reverse Canadian government policy and ban the importation and sale of all garments made with dog and cat fur.
