Stop horses from being sold and shipped to be slaughtered for meat, And have The Winnipeg James Armstrong International airport step down on allowing the transport of horse meat from here in Winnipeg.
From here the horses are packed by hundreds into transportation crates and shipped to be slaughtered and killed in Japan. The airport does this when it’s late late at night and passengers traffic is low and they can do it without being seen. If it was so right why are you hiding it? 

If you read article attached or info provided you will find out that Winnipeg has the largest horse meat market and sells thousands of house meat per week. 3700 pounds to be exact. The largest in Canada. These numbers are sick, and to find out the largest of mills are right under our nose here in Winnipeg. 

as a McLean article states under their research :

Fifty horsemeat shops in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Quebec, with still more on the way.

Ontario has one horsemeat shop in Cornwall; Toronto and Hamilton and several other Ontario cities are considering whether to follow suit.

The federal government has no objection to the sale of horsemeat for human consumption anywhere in this country provided certain conditions are complied with. Otherwise regulation of sale is entirely up to provincial and municipal authorities. The federal government requires, under the Meat and Canned Foods Act, that eating horsemeat sent from one province to another must come only from horses slaughtered in a special establishment one which mustn’t slaughter any other kind of animal and which must be under the inspection of the Federal Department of Agriculture. Under the Food and Drugs Act any eating horsemeat sold in any form in Canada must always be plainly labeled as horsemeat.

What provincial and municipal authorities do about horsemeat varies from place to place. At the provincial level, Alberta and Saskatchewan have special laws governing its sale and so far they’re the only provinces that have. If and when the rest get round to passing laws of their own, it seems likely they’ll follow the basic requirements

It isn’t possible to give more than an estimate of the amount of horsemeat Canada’s licensed horsemeat shops are selling between them because so far there are virtually no official figures to go by. But it seems probable the total might be up around two hundred tons a week. Montreal’s Paul Poirier, for instance, is selling about (325 pounds a day in each of his four shops. In Manitoba’s two horsemeat shops—one in Winnipeg and the other in adjacent St. Boniface about 3700 pounds are sold each week.

Besides this brisk legitimate trade there’s a flourishing black market. Horseleggers are understandably secretive about their business, which is to sell horsemeat as beef to respectable but unsuspicious retail butchers, but federal, provincial and local health authorities in the Toronto area told me in October—at which time the sale of horsemeat wasn’t licensed therethat, anywhere from five to fifteen or twenty tons of illicit horsemeat were coming into the city every week. And there’s little or no reason to suppose horseleggers aren't operating in plenty of other Canadian cities, too.

We NEED to stop this selling of meat, as the global market has been severely impacted by trading and selling and human consumption of different meats from different animals. 

Please sign petition to stop and shut down these horseleggers., and to stop the shipping of them to Japan.
