dogsTORONTO, MARCH 28/06 – The Humane Society of Canada is asking every resident of Toronto to contact their local Councillor to find out exactly what is going on with the City’s Dogs in Parks Strategy. “We’ve been trying to get answers for months and all we get in return is a wall of silence. A letter written more than three months ago to Deputy Mayor Sandra Bussin found here on the subject of off leash areas still goes unanswered and the key civil servant, Ms. Sandy Straw, in charge of the strategy refuses to share any information with us,” said Michael O’Sullivan, Chairman & CEO of The Humane Society of Canada.

TORONTO, APRIL 2/06 – Every time a seal pup is killed, the shock waves are felt across the country, says The Humane Society of Canada. It’s been almost a week since The Humane Society of Canada’s letters arrived in the offices of Premier Danny Williams of Newfoundland & Labrador and Prime Minister Steven Harper urging them to implement a program to buy back sealing licences and promote ecotourism to end the seal hunt. You can find copies of our letters to both the Prime Minister and the Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador.

 

VANCOUVER, JUNE 19, 2006 – While it is always up to the citizens of each country to hold their own government accountable for the way in which they discharge their public trust, the elected officials and civil servants of developing nations could seriously use some professional help in getting more foreign aid for the whaling votes they reportedly sell to Japan, according to The Humane Society of Canada (HSC).
