Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

Background to this tweet storm Be Kind Trudeau:

Canada is considered a developed country, yet its animal protection laws lag way behind other developed countries, even with the new government. Legislation is still in favour of industries that abuse animals. The proposed Bill C-246 (Modernizing Animal Protections Act) aimed to improve animal protection. However, Trudeau and his cabinet voted against it, which meant that the bill had no chance of getting through Parliament. This means animals can be treated in the most barbaric ways. All evidence shows that Trudeau is not intervening in relation to industries that harm animals, including the following: 

  • Canada still imports several hundred thousand pounds of shark fins every year.

  • Millions of farm and fur-bearing animals in Canada suffer every year because of intensive factory farming methods.

  • Long distance transportation of animals is horrific, where animals spend days crushed into trucks. Up to two million animals can die during these trips.

  • Although dog and cat fur items still slip through, there are bans on this fur in the U.S.A., Australia and throughout the European Union. With no regulation on the import of foreign fur, cat and dog fur is being sold in Canada.

  • With weak labeling laws there is no indication of the source or type of fur.

  • Canada produces many other types of fur supplied by fur farms. Mink is the most popular farmed fur, followed by fox and chinchilla.

  • Canada is one of the biggest exporters of wild fur. Fur trapping is pervasive throughout Canada and trapping fees and royalties are paid by fur trappers into government revenues.

  • Coyotes are commonly trapped in the wild for clothing such as Canada Goose jackets.

  • Black Bears are trapped to supply fur for the Queen’s Guards’ hats (UK). Canada is the only nation in the world that allows Polar Bear hunting by non-citizens.

  • The Canadian government encourages the hunt and are paying hunters for Polar Bear hides to sell at auctions for up to $11,000. This has led to an increase in the export and sales of Polar Bear skins.

  • The Canadian Government still funds the brutal commercial seal hunt industry, and has even increased quotas, despite the decline in the market for seal products. Not only does the Canadian government allow this but now has a national day celebrating the sale of seal products!

  • In Canada animals are used for human “pleasure”. For example, certain forms of bestiality are legally permitted and rodeo shows allowed.
