Petition Calling for the End of Rescue Dog Ban Presented to Parliament

A petition calling for the end of the federal government’s ban on rescue dogs from over 100 countries has been tabled in parliament. Petition e-4122 was presented by Conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner, and it calls on the government to work with animal rights advocates and dog rescues to ensure that Canadians are kept safe without increasing the number of unadopted animals globally. It has been signed by over 20,000 people; about a month remains for the government to table an official response.
