Air Canada, one of only two major North American airlines that still flies primates destined for experiments, wants to stop shipping the animals to laboratories.
But hold up! Airlines in Canada must obtain approval from the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) to revise their shipping guidelines, and the CTA is requiring Air Canada to continue shipping primates to laboratories while it considers the issue.
Ask the CTA to approve Air Canada’s request to ban the shipment of primates to laboratories before any more monkeys are transported to their deaths.
Well, I love Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, CSI, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who and comic books (I mean, my profile pic IS Damian Wayne and Bat-Cow...). I'm kind of spazzy and I tend to ramble... I'm also an obsessive perfectionist...heh heh...a science/tech nerd and a vegetarian.
