The government of Canada has introduced important updates to Canada's national pollution-prevention law, the Canadian Environmental Protection Act. This is great news for the health of Canadians and the environment—and animals. The updates also recognize the need to promote the development and use of non-animal testing methods to reduce the use of animals in painful toxicity tests.
But more needs to be done to translate words into real action. Unless the planned updates are strengthened, the government’s proposed changes could have the unintentional and unnecessary effect of increasing painful toxicity testing on animals.
Please tell the government to do more to protect laboratory animals and genetically modified animals from needless suffering.
