Animal abuse found in Quebec is starting to dwindle with their new bill, issued in 2015, stating that animals are now to be considered as “sentient beings” opposed to being labeled as property.
As people would know that the Canadian province of Quebec has been boasted as the sanctuary of puppy mills. The new bill states:
The power that inspectors have now has been amplified so that they can demand to see for themselves if an animal is being treated properly and muPeople that abuse animals as well as their rights in Quebec can now face 18 months in prison. Information provided by CBC News suggests that Agriculture Minister Pierre Paradis was the prime suspect for bringing up the bill in the first place.
Paradis brings to the table a very simple solution as to how the country can avoid obtaining some of these harsh consequences to animal abuse. He claims:st testify their “reasonable cause” for having the animal in the first place.
Even with these new found powers, inspectors still need to provide a warrant before seizing any animals at all.
