Please tell Bell Canada to quit sponsoring cruel rodeo events

If you haven’t already done so, please tell Bell Canada to stop sponsoring cruel rodeo events.

Telecommunications company Bell Canada is a key sponsor of the Calgary Stampede rodeo, in which six horses died last year.

VHS is asking the public to write to Bell, urging the company to stop supporting the Stampede rodeo. Animal advocates who are Bell customers can also advise the company that they can switch service providers if they believe Bell is supporting animal cruelty.



or write to Bell’s Chief Executive Officer:
