Nicole Joncas is a true and admirable role model. How thrilled was I to see that, further to our request for help and advertising of our demo in March 2007, the Animal Liberation Front has decided to follow up with L&P and of course, of the continuous, letal proliferation of puppy mills in Quebec. We will win this battle in one great, loud, strong voice.
Most sincere thanks to Nicole Joncas for her devoted perseverance and to the
Animal Liberation Front for supporting us.
Never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person
or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we
inflict on our soul when we look the other way."
Next to tax cuts and health care, animal welfare rates low on politicians' list of priorities heading into tomorrow's provincial election.
But one tireless activist plans to make whoever wins the election answer in
court for allowing an alleged puppy mill to remain in business despite what she
calls overwhelming - and enduring - evidence
Nicole Joncas, founder of Teja's Animal Refuge in Ontario, is asking permission in Quebec Superior Court to sue the attorney-general of Quebec and the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food for failin to enforce Quebec laws on animal welfare when it comes to the Centre d'elevage Lamarche & Pinard in Ste. Justine de Newton, about 65 kilometres west of Montreal.
For the last 21/2 years, Joncas alleges, the breeder has kept animals in overcrowded, unheated and unsanitary facilities.
Dogs are routinely left in cages with other sick, dead or dying animals, in temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius and are mistreated or beaten by employees, in blatant contravention of the Animal Health Protection Act, the lawsuit alleges.
The puppy mills of Quebec still operate. Since we obtained a meeting with the sub minister to further discuss this crucial issue on March 30, 2007, we organized another demonstration and we are asking for you to publish once again. For the voiceless, the choice less, we are the only ones that can show the population how dramatic their miserable and painful lives are like�

DEMONSTRATION IN QUEBEC CITY ON MARCH 30, 2007, 12h00
We are privileged to accept the invitation of Mrs. Martine Dubuc, sub
minister of the MAPAQ. We will meet with her on March 30, 2007. We will take
this opportunity to explain our simple and efficient vision to create the DPA
(Direction for the Protection of domestic Animals) under the ministry of
justice, with the proxy to apply the dispositions of the RSQ P-42, which needs
to be extended, more defined according to the needs of our customers, canine and
Some information on a puppy mill:
Located in Stanstead Quebec, run by Karen and Barry Stevens who moved from Ontario because the laws were too strict.
All the dogs & puppies are in a locked, very clean barn. Many puppies have died due to early age vaccinations and god knows what else. They have been known to throw dead puppies in the garbage.
She not only breeds the dogs there but crossbreeds them and has many people breeding for her. She said she sells about 80 puppies a week, mostly to Montreal pet stores and she transports to the USA. I can't even fathom 80 puppies/week.
She also raises horses which is supposed to be her "business" which is also the front for the mill.
Link to word doc from a very special from a very special woman, Nicole Joncas, universal peace ambassador (Geneva) who denunciate the Larmarche & Pinard puppy mill for over 3 years now (and for which puppy mill you already published our letter).
We thank you for supporting us in informing the whole world about what is going on here and, for your information, this puppy mill we refer to still operate, having even more locations now in which dogs are dying, without a voice, without a choice.
With best regards and gratitude,
Nicole Messier, fondatrice et directrice générale et Marcell

WE NEED YOUR HELP! please visit
WE HAVE OVER 1500 puppy mills in Quebec and the tortured animals do not get help in any way. PLEASE HELP US IN ANY WAY YOU CAN!
We can supply you with hundreds of addresses of puppy mills, that hold between 40 up to 600 DOGS captive in the most awful, inhumane conditions.
The situation is beyond your wildest imagination, we do not know where to turn anymore, since our government will not take action to solve this crime against our animals (it is chocking considering we have a law that allows to close them all down...).
It is so cold this winter, they are dying right now. Please, if I could write to you with my tears of blood, I would... Please, help us.
Thank you for reading our plea for those who have no voice and no choice and that I love above all. Marcell died in there... I cannot forgive neither forget. I am crying his tears.
Thank you so much, since knowing you read our desperate need for help can help us go through another day without relief for those surviving in these hell holes.
With the best regards of
Nicole et Marcell pour
