UPDATE: Dog and Cat Fur Trade

As you may know, the new election wiped out existing Bills C-438 and C-618 –
both of which, if passed would have banned dog and cat fur.

Since that time, MP Peter Julian of the NDP, Burnaby-New Westminster, BC,
tabled a motion in parliament. Below is the text of that motion:


June 6, 2011 – Peter Julian (MP, Burnaby-New Westminster, BC) – That, in the
opinion of the House, the government should: (a) ban the import, export and
sale of dog, and cat fur; (b) impose penalties on individuals and businesses
who deal with unlabeled and falsely labelled dog and cat fur products; and
(c) work with provincial counterparts and the international community to
advance support for the implementation of a complete ban of the trade in all
dog and cat fur products worldwide.

When parliament reconvenes in September, we will likely see the

reintroduction of a bill to ban dog/cat fur. If passed, the bill could also make it law

for manufacturers to label all real fur products.


Paws up to Peter!

Once the new bill to ban dog and cat fur has been tabled, and we have a bill number, we will

need your help to get it passed. Stay tuned!
