If you have read my short story “The Chamber” you’ll have seen that it was inspired by the infamous kill box that is used to put down animals with. You see, the town I live in, Elliot Lake (Ontario) has this kill box at its city pound. It has been a sore spot for years for us animal activists in town and outside of it. It has been the towns dirty, best kept, little secret for years and years. We are the only ones left in the Algoma district with this inhumane way of destroying animals.
I’d like to bring to attention the petition that is going around to stop this inhumane treatment of animals in Elliot Lake and the sweeping away under the rug of this dirty secret. It will also be investigated by our Ministry under the Animals in Research Act as a complaint from a local activist was made to them and if you catch CTV in your area they will be here at the site of the kill box interviewing that local who made the complaint to the ministry. 1 pm on Monday, August 22.
Here is the petition that you can sign no matter WHERE you live. It should not exist anywhere. Elliot Lake Gas Chamber Petition

As well as our local no kill shelter that has saved 122 animals from the gas chamber to date: SAD ELLIOT LAKE
