- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals · Mac Harb

An an­i­mal rights group has named Se­na­tor Mac Harb its Cana­dian of the Year. The Peo­ple for the Eth­i­cal Treat­ment of An­i­mals, or PETA, said in a re­lease Wed­nes­day that it chose Harb for the hon­our be­cause of his ef­forts to pass leg­is­la­tion ban­ning the com­mer­cial seal hunt. Harb’s Bill S-210, which would phase out the hunt, has passed sec­ond read­ing in the Se­nate. The group said that achieve­ment has en­sured that “the de­bate will con­tinue” on the is­sue and lauded Harb’s “tire­less ef­forts.” PETA will present the award in Harb’s Par­lia­ment Hill of­fice on Thurs­day.
