Help Rural Manitobans Shut the Door on More Pig Factories: Stop Bill 19

This petition had 23,691 supporters

In Canada, Manitoba's provincial government has concocted a smelly and hazardous scheme for rural people, pigs and the environment. Millions more pigs will be raised in factory barns for slaughter. Land, air and water pollution will increase. The ability of rural people to prevent this can be taken away. Public hearings start May 9. A decision will happen this spring. They need to hear from us NOW!

Manitoba Legislature:  Withdraw Bill 19

We want the Manitoba Legislature to withdraw Bill 19, or millions more pigs will be raised in factory barns. More liquid manure will pollute land, air and water for taxpayers to clean up. Generations will bear the social, economic and environmental consequences, all for the sake of two corporations’ shareholder profits.

Rural people want to keep their right to say no to hog industry expansion into their communities. They do not want to wake up one morning to find a hog factory being built in their backyard. Provincial officials cannot be trusted to regulate in secrecy, an industry actively promoted by government.
