The New World Day For All Animals In Experiments!

April 24, 2021

Stop Inhumane Experiments on Domestic and Wild Animals!

This year is the 40th Anniversary of the Lifeforce Foundation. As part of our many campaigns to protect people, animals and the environment, Lifeforce investigated and exposed research atrocities behind the closed doors of vivisection laboratories and out of public view in the wild. Lifeforce’s new plan is to protect all life by exposing the cruel, barbaric experiments on endangered orcas and numerous other marine lives.

In the 80s, Lifeforce laid the first Canadian Cruelty to Animal Charges against vivisectors at the University of Western Ontario. We stopped their four month restraint of wild caught baboons funded by a Heart and Stroke Foundation. Our major breakthrough raised public awareness of the inhumane, scientifically fallacious experiments funded by government and public organizations.

Our work continues to “Stop Vivisection Canada”. There must be a phase out period of no longer than ten years. We are also raising public awareness of the history of experiments at the present St. Paul’s Hospital since the 50s to stop it from continuing at the new 2027 hospital site in Vancouver, BC. Monkeys, dogs and many other species have been subjected to experiments including forced inhalation of cigarette smoke for 16 weeks. See our video: No New Animal Labs at St. Paul’s Hospital!

Lifeforce In the Wild since the 90s

This April it was revealed that a Grey whale has been suffering from a major infection due to being shot with a tracking dart on September 28th (euphemistically called “satellite tags”). The Vancouver Aquarium vet then shot the whale with antibiotics. There can be unknown side effects such as extreme sickness and death. This was a joint study between the U.S. and Canada to track already known routes.

In 2016 an endangered orca in L pod died from infection from these types of experiments five weeks after being “tagged”. At that time two Transient orcas were believed to have died. There were also 12 others with parts of old “tags” in them. In addition, Right whales had swelling from infections and “dolphins” died during “handling” to attach tags. Other research victims include Humpback whales.

A lot of harm from various types of experiments has been caused for decades. Researchers said it is always a "risk". They said that they were "dismayed" that they killed an endangered orca. The issue of pain was not discussed.

“The full report may shock you! The Good News is that the Lifeforce Public Awareness Plan will help implement humane, non invasive technologies and methodologies. It has been available but stopped by the old school of vivisectors!“ Peter Hamilton, Lifeforce Foundation
