Well, the MP's held their vote on our animal abuse Bill and we're not satisfied.
Those found guilty can receive a fine of up to $5,000 and up to 5 years in jail. Three special interest groups got the ears of the MP's and scared them off from putting anything with teeth into it, including hunters, farmers, and the people who use rats and animals for laboratory. Frankly, I don't see why they couldn't specify "house pets" and "hobby farm animals" or something. Right now, there's a Bill, but there's nothing to really allow the Courts to make them use it. Not happy.
