St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, BC is planning to relocate to a new site, scheduled for completion in 2022. Few people knew about the experiments it conducts on animals, which began in the late 50s and continue today. Lifeforce’s campaign is aimed at stopping any new animal labs from being constructed.
As you will see in our new video of the history of animal experiments at St. Paul’s Hospital, animal victims over the years have included monkeys, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, pigs, rats, and mice. Animals have been subjected to various experimental surgeries, forced to inhale cigarette smoke, and much, much more. The lucrative animal research industry must not be allowed to continue St. Paul’s dark history of vivisection.
Our petition, “Stop the Pain! Stop Vivisection Canada!” reached over 700 signatures in 5 days. The petition seeks to first stop some of the most painful experiments on animals while implementing a phase out of all similar animal experiments.
