YEG City Councilor Byelection Candidate, Edmonton, Alberta
February XXIst, MMXVI
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
My Feline Son & Chief Campurrgn Strategist James Redwing aka "J.R." Cat Koopmans has reminded me of the impurrtance this day of Ward XII residents & other Edmontonians about being good to their animal friends. He has declared "total open warfurr" against animal abuse & I agree with him completely! In addition to having called in Animal Control twice for dead animals who were obviously harmed greatly before they suffered & died as I canvassed neighborhoods & dropped brochures, I have had residents tell me how upsetting it is for them their animals sometimes get hurt in the course of a crime(s) being committed against them & their families/property.
Sure, animal control & the Edmonton Humane Society are located on the north side of the river, but purrhaps a south side satellite Humane Society location to better deal with attacks on the south side of the city might be a wise move. In good times & bad, recession or great economy, we rely on our animal friends furr comfort & they should definitely be respected & not abused.
