Shark Finning

On Thursday, January 12th, 2012 in Get Involved

Shark populations around the world are plummeting due to the making of shark fin soup. Quite often, fishers will retain just the shark fin and discard the rest of the fish.

Help Elizabeth get a ban on the possession of shark fins. Sign below or download this petition, have as many people as possible to sign it, and mail it – postage free – to either her Ottawa or Sidney offices. With as few as 25 signatures, Elizabeth can present your petition to the government in the House of Commons.

We call upon the House of Commons to ban the possession, trade, distribution or offer for sale of shark fins in Canada, understanding shark fins to be the raw, dried, or otherwise processed detached fin or tail of any species of shark (subclass elasmobranchii).
