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.
You can simply say “I am opposed to animal testing at the new St. Paul’s Hospital”. Since the Public Hearing has been scheduled for October 22nd, your comments will be distributed to Council and shown on the City’s website. Please include your name because anonymous comments are not shared with Council.
