Business list for petitions in the Okanagan – Bill C-229 Legislation against Animal Cruelty

Looking for 100 businesses in the Okanagan. Please consider doing this in your own Canadian city. 1000 persons with 1000 signatures is 1 Million signatures. Your bit could be as simple as signing your name saying you want change.

If you can suggest any receptive business, please let me know. If you would like to help distribute petitions, send me a message. If you would like to just print off the petition, Bill and Coles Notes version, and put it in your business, by all means, here are the links. Please send a note so I can add your business here. I will do a first round of petition pick up March 15, and a second round Apr 25. Businesses, I will be sending out a press release by the end of Feb. If you want to be included, you need to tell me.

If you would like to see what Bill C-229 is all about, please read the info from MP Mark Hollands website. Forget about politics: if you are Lib or Cons or Green or NDP or Independent. This is about getting the animal cruelty laws changed because it is the right thing to do:
