A petition to change the laws?

This comment in another thread deserves space here on the front page:

A note for all the readers of this blog. There is a group of people working diligently behind the scenes to produce a presentation on behalf of the people affected by Gail Harrison, Misty Gardens and Domestic Animal Cremation. This presentation will be introduced first to the people of this blog, then to related agencies for their input. Ultimately we hope it will result in a petition which will find its way to the Legislative Assembly for the consideration of new laws governing the cremation and burial of domestic animals. For those of you attending the coffee klatch, or anyone out there affected by this horror, we need you to discuss, think about, and consider what laws/changes are needed in this province to prevent another Harrison Horror. Food for thought. We will provide more info at a later date.

I look forward to hearing more about this in the future.


Proposed Legislation or Changes to Existing Legislation

Anyone gathering information intended to form a basis for proposed legislation or changes to any applicable existing legislation on this subject should first read the "Cemeteries Act" of Manitoba. It can be found at:

The Act is woefully inadequate with respect to human cemeteries: Fines for 'mischief' in cemeteries range from $4. to a maximum of $40. We have an uphill battle ahead of us!
