Manitoba Animal Care Amendment Act Receives Assent

Manitoba’s Animal Care Amendment Act has received assent. The Act prohibits people from leaving a pet unattended in a vehicle, without climate control running, when the outside temperature is above twenty-two degrees Celsius or below minus ten degrees Celsius. MLA Obby Khan, who introduced the bill in the legislature, said: "Animal welfare in our province just became stronger […] Officers of the law can now act province-wide to save animals from suffering during extreme temperatures. This is an all-around win."
