Econews: Vivisection In Canada

Apri l 15, 2009

I have some very important information about vivisection in Vancouver, BC. This is very timely in view that World Week for Animals in Laboratories is planned for April 18th to 26th. Organizations and individuals throughout the world will conduct events to focus on the plight of animals and the harm to people that result from these scientifically fallacious “animal models”. Every year Lifeforce provides a free downloadable poster. The poster is available at:

More Posters are available in our Resources>Poster section.

In this ECONEWS read about:
Item #1: BC Fire Fighters Burn & Wound Lab at VGH
Item #2: Canadian Military Experiments on Animals at VGH
Item #3: ICORD Spinal Cord Experiments at VGH
How Many Animals Are Killed In Canada?
(There was a substantial increase of animals including experiments with 3660 marine mammals.)


What You Can Do!
The Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) has failed to adhere to their claimed mandate called the “3Rs” – Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of experiments on animals.
Tell them to stop the burn/wound experiments and the military training/experiments with animals because viable non-animal methods are available. Email Dr. Clement Gauthier, Executive Director – cgauthier@ccac.ca
