Stop Air Canada Transporting Lab Animals (via SHAC-UK)

It was recently disclosed that Air Canada are transporting monkeys after an
employee at Toronto international airport tipped off the campaigners that a
shipment of 48 monkeys destined for Montreal was being held at the airport
after arriving from China.

Please contact Air Canada and urge them to end their involvement in the
transport of primates for vivisection!

Sample Letter below, (feel free to write your own):


Dear Air Canada representative,

I was extremely disappointed to learn that your company transports monkeys for
use in biomedical research, and would like to inform you that I'm extremely
uncomfortable with the idea of laboratory animals being transported on the same
plane as myself and my luggage.

The vast majority of passenger airlines now have strict policies against the
transport of laboratory animals and therefore I will not fly with Air Canada
until you enact a policy ending your transport of lab animals!

I hope you will consider my concerns,
