On May 20th 2014, VCARE was provided time on the Langford City Council agenda to present regarding the animal welfare concerns at the Luxton Pro Rodeo held annually within their municipality. Our good friend Jordan with The Raging Kucing documented the presentation. It can be seen here:
Tomorrow evening at 630pm we will be gathering outside the City of Langford municipal hall located at 877 Goldstream Ave. The last council meeting before the annual Luxton Pro Rodeo is at 7pm. We have previously requested the opportunity to present as a delegation to Langford council. That request was delayed and delayed and eventually they just stopped answering our emails.
In order to let the City of Langford Mayor and Council know we are serious, we are here to stay and we will work until animal welfare is a serious consideration and will be addressed by the local politicians. They have the power to end the inhumane events taking place each year within their borders, yet choose to do nothing.
The rodeo organizers and the city officials refuse to come to the table and discuss what can be done to address the concerns of citizens.
