Birding's Tickle Times

Birding

A Laugh a Day Can Keep the Blues Away!

My second book "Birding’s Tickle Times" carries on with my humorous messages that began with “Nature’s Tickle Times”. It is a fascinating blend of incredible photography and cheerful commentary meant to raise awareness of the unique and wonderful fellow beings with whom we share this planet. Laugh with a diversity of wild birds and other surprises.

This is the third book that I have published including the armchair book hike “Art in Action: All Life Matters”. All proceeds from book sales will be spent on the Lifeforce 40th Anniversary projects.

Have a Very Tickle Time!

Vote No To Rodeo Cruelty In Langley, British Columbia!

Vote No To Rodeo Cruelty In Langley, British Columbia!

Lifeforce has sent the following letter to the Langley City Council including our investigative report “Rodeo 101”. So far, the responses have been positive. See Rodeo 101 video version RODEO 101 VIDEO.

Animal and Child Abuse
In 2009, Lifeforce had previously urged Chilliwack Mayor and Council; Langley Mayor and Council and
Surrey Mayor and Council to protect young children being injured at “Lil’ Britches Rodeos”. At these “rodeos” kids were crying and injured. Parents had to sign a waiver for "injury or death".

This is part of the brainwashing of the lucrative rodeo industry. These are some of the reasons that it is time to stop this cruel exploitation of animals and people. Further information/video "Bless the Beasts and the Children" Bless the Beasts and the Children.

Human Rights Violations
The proposed Langley rodeo contact is the former vice president of the Cloverdale Rodeo & Exhibition Association who, with other Cloverdale Rodeo Board Members, are being investigated by the B.C Human Rights Tribunal for alleged conspiracy to cover up racism, sexism, and physical abuse.

Rodeo Bans
Lifeforce has been investigating the animal abuses at Canadian rodeos for many years and supports a total ban. In the 80s, Lifeforce investigations of circuses led to the total ban of all circus animal acts of circuses operating in Saanich and Victoria, BC. This was a first in the world!

Over the years many rodeos were stopped. The City of Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver have banned rodeos. Bans also include several cities in the US and Europe, the U.K. and Holland.
Take Action Now!

Please email the Township of Langley mayorcouncil@tol.ca who will be addressing these issues Monday Night on June 13th. Tell them you don’t support a Langley rodeo for cruel tourism! Businesses must stop promoting violence in our society. Violence begets violence. Violence towards animals leads to violence against people. Ban rodeos and replace them with people and animal friendly events.

Lifeforce Letter to Town of Langley

Dear Council Members:
On behalf of our members and supporters in Langley, I submit one of our investigations detailing the ongoing abuse, injuries and deaths of animals exploited in rodeos. As you see this also includes “rodeo” children (“Rodeo 101”)
I have investigated numerous rodeos including the Cloverdale Rodeo and Abbotsford Agrifair and Rodeo. This report exposes some of the continued cruelty inherent with the rodeo industry. Please Vote No to Rodeo Cruelty in Langley! Please protect animals and people!
In Respect for All Life,

Be Safe On The Water!

Humpbacks Big Mama and calf were breaching off Comox Harbour on June 2. It was documented by Peter Hamilton, Lifeforce Foundation, and they were identified by the Marine Education and Research Society (MERS). This is Big Mama’s seventh baby. They arrived further south in May from Hawaii.

Although whales are a wonder to watch it has caused major life threatening injuries to boaters, humpbacks and orcas. Read how to be safe on the water at Marine Education and Research Society - See A Blow? Go Slow! (mersociety.org) and www.lifeforcefoundation.org

New Release: Art In Action: All Life Matters

The new book “All Life Matters” by Peter Hamilton, Lifeforce Founder, gives everyone the wonderful experience of an armchair nature book hike. Experience a diversity of wildlife from insects to whales in their natural homes in the warmth and comfort of your home.

“All Life Matters” is the first of Lifeforce’s Art in Action books. As with protest songs, “protest” art can also lead the way to protect all life!

Since 1981 the amazing photography collection of Peter Hamilton helped taught everyone to understand the intrinsic beauty of all life with whom we share this planet. Many species suffer by the hands of humans. Throughout history humans have been a violent species. Violence to animals begets violence to humans. We all must raise public awareness of the ongoing need to end speciesism.

Learn about being a protector of nature through this "Book Hike" through the wilds. All proceeds from book sales will help protect people, animals and ecosystems. View at Purchase All Life Matters.

Donations can also be made to Lifeforce either by mail to: Lifeforce Foundation, Box 3117, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6B 3X6 or through PayPal (Click on “Support Us” on the web site). Lifeorce Donations.

Have Great Hiking Times!

The New World Day For All Animals In Experiments! Part 2

The New World Day For All Animals In Experiments! Part 2

Stopping Inhumane Experiments on Domestic and Wild Animals!

During our 4 decades the Lifeforce endless campaigns protected people, animals and the environment. I investigated and exposed research atrocities behind the closed doors of vivisection laboratories and out of public view in the wild. Lifeforce’s new plans have included exposing the cruel, barbaric experiments on endangered orcas and numerous other marine lives. Stop Vivisection Canada.

In the Labs since the 80s
Our work continues to “Stop Vivisection Canada”. There must be a phase out period of no longer than ten years. We are also raising public awareness of the history of experiments at the St. Paul’s Hospital since the 50s to stop it from continuing at the new 2027 hospital site in Vancouver, BC. Monkeys, dogs and many other species have been subjected to experiments including forced inhalation of cigarette smoke. See our video: No New Animal Labs at St. Paul’s Hospital! No New Animal Labs at St. Paul's Hospital!

When I see dogs and cats it brings back my horrific memories of the labs. I see the electrodes implanted into their brains, chronic restraint, full body burns, severed spinal cords and much, much more. I live with PTSD but I keep going to help stop all vivisection and to end the harm to sentient beings from inhumane, scientifically fallacious experiments.
The greatest gift for my birthday on April 26th would be your donations to continue the work of Lifeforce. Donations for a Lifeforce documentary and important projects can be made to Lifeforce Foundation either by mail to: Lifeforce Foundation, Box 3117, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6B 3X6 or through PayPal (Click on “Support Us” on our web site www.lifeforcefoundation.org ).

World Week To End Experiments On All Animals!

posted on April 18, 2022

World Week To End Experiments On All Animals!

World Day for Animals in Laboratories is Sunday, April 24th with the surrounding World Week as April 20th to April 26th.

The Lifeforce Foundation is continuing to raise public awareness of the urgent need to shut down the industries’ inhumane, scientifically fallacious experiments on domestic and wild animals. It can be achieved as a phase out period in less than 10 years. This can be compared to governments now mandating companies to end their life threatening environmental pollution. Tell your politicians to take actions to protect all life!

Read more about the vivisection businesses exploiting both domestic animals and wildlife on Stop Vivisection Canada! STOP VIVISECTION FACEBOOK.

Lifeforce was formed in 1981. Our Anniversary plans include a documentary and Animal Rights books. This will include the history of our exposure of animal experiments across Canada and the US. From ending Pound Seizure in California to stopping the Heart Foundations’ experiments on wild caught baboons at the University of Western Ontario to exposing the spinal cord experiments on kittens and dogs at UCLA and UBC. A lot has been accomplished but a lot more has to be done!

Lifeforce Founder, Peter Hamilton, did ground breaking investigations over the decades. He created strategies to help define the new Animal Rights Movement. His investigations and campaigns were crucial in leading the way to help protect people, animals and ecosystems.

Lifeforce’s upcoming documentary is tentatively titled “In Respect for All Life”. Here is a short video as a reminder of a few of the many victories that Lifeforce has achieved. LIFEFORCE DOCUMENTARY.

You can help protect the rights of fellow sentient creatures with whom we share this planet. Peter’s birthday is on April 26th so please also help him continue his lifesaving work by making a donation.

Donations for the Lifeforce documentary and projects can be made to Lifeforce Foundation either by mail to: Lifeforce Foundation, Box 3117, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6B 3X6 or through PayPal (Click on “Support Us” on the web site). Please use our printable donation form for all postal mail donations. DONATION FORM.

To save the future we must learn from the past so history does not repeat itself. We must raise public awareness of the ongoing need to end speciesism in order to finally bring Peace for All Life!

Herring And Humans In Harm!

Herring And Humans In Harm!

Did You Know?

There have been countless marine life polluters! In 2018 the herring fleet likely illegally dumped sewage that contaminated shell fish and over 150 people got sick from the norovirus (Probable cause as determined by BC Center for Disease Control). No fines were issued and DFO wrote a meager reminder to them of the regulations and to try to do better. NOROVIRUS SICKENS OVER 150 PEOPLE.

2022 DFO NOTICE : PUBLIC HEALTH AND AQUACULTURE: “Vessel Masters are reminded that there are numerous clam and oyster leases in Baynes Sound. Disposal of human waste into waters near shellfish harvest areas creates potentially serious health risks for shellfish consumers. The discharge of untreated sewage into all Canadian inland waters and Canadian coastal waters within 3 nautical miles of land is banned under the Canada Shipping Act. Vessels participating in the herring fishery are required to abide by sewage discharge regulations and are requested to minimize impact to aquaculture sites by utilizing marinas, anchoring in existing sanitary closures and minimizing congregations of vessels near shellfish aquaculture sites as much as possible.”

Let’s Have the Truth!: No More Crap! End Marine Pollution!

Stop Treating Ecosystems as Sewage Dumps!

The sewage dumping and leaching into water ways and oceans continues to impact countless marine lives in the now broken ocean food chain along the BC Coastline and beyond.

It is time to end quick, cheaper temporary fixes seen with the dumping raw sewage off Victoria in the home of the orcas now driven to the point of extinction; the Comox Valley sewage dumping 300 meters off Cape Lazo in whale habitat; the leaking sewage pipes along Point Holmes harming streams and Baynes Sound; after over 30 years the Courtenay-Comox Sewage Commission delaying a raw sewage “odour” improvement for a cheaper plan and in 2018  the B.C. Ministry of Environment issued the Village of Cumberland another non-compliance notice for its sewage treatment issues but later included a referral for an administrative penalty.
