Changes To Improve Animal Welfare

However it may it be pointed out that no amount of written Legislation (LAW) is effective when it is not stringently enforced by those Powers that Be (government of Ontario) actively take part in monitoring and overseeing the activities of the body to which powers of investigation and enforcement are given  (OSPCA).

One need only Google:  Scandals OSPCA and one will find a wealth of media reports and Blog posts which if they take the time to read, will raise serious questions.  Not only questions as to how these incidents happened in the first place, but also raise the questions as to just WHY this situation has been allowed to continue this long and WHY has nothing been done by the Ontario Government to step in.

With the Fall Election not far away, it is time that those Provincial Government Officials who intend to run for re-election step up to the plate.  It is time that they actually listened, that they actually pay attention to the ongoing situation whereby shelter animals in Ontario continue to lose their lives and taxpayers  of Ontario raise their voices in protest on that very issue.  Sticking ones head in the sand or fingers in ones ears hoping that the issue will go away, is not a very good way to be re-elected.

 Being proactive, taking a stance, listening and acting on the concerns which have been constantly raised by so many taxpayers of Ontario on the situation faced by Ontario animals held in shelters, shelters which are to be scrutinized by the OSPCA …. And by overseeing and monitoring/reviewing OSPCA policies and procedures  is the Way to be Re-elected.

The few links contained below have been easily located on Google by searching OSPCA Scandals.

Surely the countless number of Ontario residents that are desperately working to getting positive change needed to guarantee the protection of animals in a province that reported has the Strongest Animal Protection Law in Canada, as per the Ontario Government itself, are not crazies.  These dedicated individuals SEE the problem and have combined forces to actually DO something about it.  Why has the Provincial Government failed to take heed? 

Prior to the Election it is suggested that all current and prospective MLA’s and Ministers be contacted and the question “What do you intend to do to remedy this ongoing situation?” be asked.  Request written responses and keep them….
