- Jane Philpott, Minister of Health
Bill s-214 to end animal testing on cosmetics was first introduced in 2015. Although the bill was denied, it was brought back recently in 2017. Animal testing has increased within the past years to the point where there are now just over three million animals being used. Pound seizure is only legal in Ontario and it allows research companies and education centers to purchase dogs and cats from shelters to use for experimental purposes. Cosmetic testing should not be used because there are already enough cosmetics and many cosmetic companies that do not test on animals. If this is an option, why are companies continuing to test on animals?
We would like the Minister of Health, Jane Philpott, and the Canadian government to ban the use of animal testing on cosmetics. This petition encourages the passing of Bill S-214, the Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act.
