I don't have the power to change anything, but that won't stop me from spreading info or stating my opinion
Actually you do.
An idea begins as a tiny spark and grows into a flame when nourished.
All it take is a belief in that idea and a willingness to stand behind it.
In th case of countries that eat dogs...One must realize that while we view our morals as superior to others....They too hold their morals above ours.
It is in the traits we share that we can work out the differences we have.
Thank you....it's not about what someone eats it's how they treat that being. How a lot of Asians treat animals is unforgivable and unacceptable, garbage is treated better. I'll never try and change someones food choices but I will try and educate and sway them to buy from those who give the animal proper and humane housing and existence. Then a humane slaughter, it can be done.
Remember it is through our sameness we can share our differences.
With that said I would suggest working towards goals closer to home.
It is a hands on approach that brings about change not headlines about places that never read those headlines.
I also take your advice to hear papasmerf.
I am trying to change the minds of Canadians as it relates to their acceptance of private healthcare insurance for animals, but not for humans. I want Canadians to treat humans as well as they treat animals in regards to letting humans pay for medically necessary procedures. Currently, in Ontario, pets can get faster treatment than humans. This is shameful.
I hope to change hearts and minds one day.
My Aunt died because of shortages and waiting lists in the public healthcare system. If my dog were sick, it would have a better care schedule than what my Aunt received.
If I am legally allowed to buy insurance for my pet or pay $4,000 for medical care for my dog, I should be able to pay or buy insurance for myself or my wife etc.
And I HATE the IDIOTS that LIE and CLAIM that no one goes without needed healthcare in Ontario. They claim that Ontarians are seen based on need, but that is IMPOSSIBLE.
If I am waiting to see a specialist, waiting to get a scan done, waiting to go to a follow up etc., how does the Ontario medical care system know my need and my emergency.
Answer: They don't.
Speak to any Oncology Surgeon and he/she will admit that some of his patients die before he/she can attend to their medical needs.
