St. Paul’s Hospital requires rezoning from Vancouver City Council for its new site. The Hospital has not yet decided whether experimentation with animals will occur in the hospital laboratories. Animal experimentation is horrifically cruel – animals may be burned, poisoned, starved, electric-shocked, brain damaged and infected with disease. Furthermore, animal testing is not effective for human medical advances – we now have sophisticated, human-relevant alternatives. Whether you live in Vancouver or not, please help persuade Vancouver City Council to prohibit animal experimentation at the new Hospital.
