MP Brian Masse wants truth in fur labelling

On November 16, 2011 – Mr. Brian Masse (Windsor West, NDP) moved for leave to introduce Bill C-349, An Act to amend the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act and the Textile Labelling Act (animal fur or skin).

He said: “Mr. Speaker, it may not be well known but many products on Canadian shelves actually have dog and cat fur in them. Over two million dogs and cats are slain for their fur which is imported into places like Canada but consumers are not aware of that.


If dog or cat fur is going to be used in a product, this legislation calls for it to be labelled on the product so consumers can have a choice. This is important because of the inhumanity that is often involved with the slaying of the dogs and cats, animals that we have as pets here in Canada. I am sure most Canadians would not want to make that choice if they knew that their child’s toy or scarf or coat had dog or cat fur as part of its substance.”

Thank you MP Masse for bring the dog and cat fur trade to light. Do your part – always say no to fur and fur trim.
