Barrie – Public Information Session on Roadside Zoos
(Barrie, Ontario) Last October, Liberal MPP David Zimmer introduced Bill 154, “The Regulation of Zoos Act,” which could help the hundreds of animals suffering in roadside zoos across Ontario.
The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) is holding public information sessions in communities that have roadside zoos to discuss the implications of the Zimmer Bill, how it will improve the lives of roadside zoo animals, and what you can do to ensure it becomes law.
The next information session takes place on Tuesday, February 20th, 2007 in Barrie from 6 to 8 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 147, 410 St. Vincent Street.
Everyone is welcome to attend this free session.
