Canada’s House of Commons poised to pass animal testing ban?

Canada’s House of Commons is widely expected to pass a bill that purports to end the practice of testing cosmetics on animals, according to a report published by iPolitics.

The Cruelty-free Cosmetic Act would ban both cosmetics testing on animals and the sale of cosmetics that have been tested on animals.  

“Protecting animals has always been a cause that I care deeply about and I am pleased to sponsor this bill so MPs can debate this important issue,” said MP Marilyn Gladu, the bill’s sponsor in a statement.

If passed, Canada would become the 40th country to usher in a ban – although there is some concern that time is tight to get the bill passed before the end of session.
