Libby Davies, MP for Vancouver East, British Columbia, is supporting this ban shock collars petition and presenting it to parliament. While there is little doubt that this petition was conceived of with the best intentions, this type of legislation paves the way for the animal rights lobby to propose other, more aggressive limits on the ways in which we live, and work with dogs and other animals. “The problem with the animal rights criticism is they don’t know the first thing about what it takes to train an animal and what is humane or not humane,” explains Dennis Foster, Executive Director of the MFHA.
