2021 was the year of our 30th anniversary, so we were thinking about the efforts, achievements, projects in which we have not succeeded, not yet. One of the endeavors we have worked so hard on, the investigation involves all matters related to animals. We have been successful, but the number of abused and exploited animals continues to rise in research, contrary to what the research community will convince us. In keeping with our philosophy that animals should not be used in research, we have worked to bring about broad and global change; Incremental steps to reduce the number of dead and slaughtered animals. We are always clear that we are fighting against a powerful opponent. This rival is the very idea that justice can be done by harming and victimizing animals in the hope that man will benefit.

We’ve all seen advertisements featuring people suffering from a traumatic illness, followed by a request to donate to a charity that promises treatment. However, 95% of drugs tested to be safe and effective in animals fail in human clinical trials. There is no explanation that such outdated research methods are being used even when modern non-animal alternatives exist (now known as “new approach methods”) and this research has a lot available for it. Loving animals don’t love humans. We ask for the benefit of all of them, a modern research approach that promotes human health and safety without the use and suffering of animals. Our most prevalent adversary is the powerful idea of being vulnerable to animal exploitation, the idea that loving and caring for humans goes hand in hand with the desire to exploit and harm nonhumans. This idea, endorsed by all of Canada’s governments, corporations large and small, and most, if not all, of our major educational institutions, is hard to challenge.
