The Animal Is The Political.
It is my view that the moral baseline of our society is measured by its treatment of those most vulnerable within it. In Canada, no individuals are more vulnerable than non-human animals. They are defined as property under the Canadian Criminal Code, they lack recognition as contributing members of society, and their forms of communication are invalidated as of a lesser kind than human communication in normative social discourse.
Despite all this, they are a deeply embedded citizenry that is given little to no voice or representation at any level of government. Meanwhile, private citizens spend countless hours, dollars, and energy trying to piece together the disgraceful mess that the lack of action by any Canadian government over the last 124 years to address the inhumane and cruel treatment of non-human animals has left them with.
Animal Protection Party of Canada (Formerly Animal Alliance Environment Voters) is dedicated to raising awareness and improving the status of non-human across Canada because these issues matter to Canadians. Whether you care for a dog or cat, enjoy seeing wildlife it their natural habitat, or have been disturbed by the inhumane treatment of animals in factory farm settings; you have probably met an non-human animal that deserves better.
Animal Protection Party is about more than non-human animals though. We know that across Canada people are demanding change for themselves too. Environmental protection, healthcare, employment, and education are just a few areas that people deserve better and APP is committed to bringing them change that endures.
Our platform is built inclusive of all animals because we know Canadians care about protecting their communities and all who they share their lives with.
Please join me and Animal Protection Party of Canada in making a future we can all be proud of.
