Ontario election

Health care, crime, the environment, electoral reform: the major issues in this year's provincial election. Who's talking about animals? No one as far as I can tell. Because parties and politicians don't consider animal protection one of those 'big issues' it's not always easy (or even possible) to figure out where and how animals fit into their platforms. Of course, you could always ask the candidates where they stand. WSPA has a website feature designed to make this a little easier.

This summer the McGuinty government expressed a commitment to updating and improving the Ontario SPCA Act. Of course, I'd rather see action than promises...
