After PETA Intervention and Years of Campaigning, Canadian Transportation Agency Agrees to Amendment in Airline's Cargo Policy

Montréal -- Following more than a year of deliberation,
including input from PETA, the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) has just
ruled that it will allow Air Canada to submit revisions to its shipping policy
to ban the transport of primates destined for laboratories, where they are
often poisoned, addicted to drugs, mutilated, and killed.
Air Canada requested permission from the CTA to end
the cruel practice in November 2011, after being urged to take this action by
PETA, other animal welfare groups, and members of the public. The airline
stated that the proposed ban was "both to align our policies with those of
many other major international carriers and in response to widespread public
concern." Following objections from animal experimenters, the CTA initially
did not approve the ban and scheduled a hearing on the issue. PETA immediately
filed comments, which were included in the official record, in support of Air
Canada's proposed ban. Through PETA's website, nearly 19,000 people also urged
the CTA to approve the ban. Today, the CTA ruled in Air Canada's favour,
leaving the airline free to re-file its proposed ban and bring it into effect.
"The CTA's decision will allow Air Canada finally
to do what PETA and kind people across North America have been urging for
years: Stop delivering primates to misery and death in laboratories," says
PETA Senior Vice President of Laboratory Investigations Kathy Guillermo.
"Air Canada passengers will soon be able to rest assured that their ticket
purchases will not fund the capturing, cutting up, and killing of primates in
tens of thousands of monkeys—many of whom were torn away from their families in
the wild—are flown from Asia and Africa to North America, where they are caged,
experimented on, and killed in laboratories. Nearly every major airline in the
world refuses to participate in this cruel practice. Air Canada's ban will
leave United/Continental as the only major North American airline still willing
to ship primates to laboratories.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
