MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith has tabled a groundbreaking federal bill to ban fur farms Canada-wide.
Fur farms cram thousands of animals like minks, foxes, and rabbits in tiny wire cages, which causes incredible physical and mental suffering. The filthy and crowded conditions on fur farms also create the perfect breeding grounds for the spread of dangerous viruses.
British Columbia recently banned mink farming after three COVID-19 outbreaks infected animals and workers, leading one farmer to brutally kill off 1,000 innocent minks to stop the spread.
COVID-19 has infected minks at fur farms around the world, and health experts are sounding the alarm that these dangerous outbreaks could lead to viral mutations that could prolong the pandemic.
Please take action today and ask your Member of Parliament to support an immediate ban on fur farms—both to protect public health, and the animals who endure heartbreaking cruelty.
