Subject: Ottawa, Canada, friendship city with Seoul, S. Korea
 
Dear Mayor Watson.
Dear members of the City Council:
 
Seoul became Friendship city with Ottawa in 1997.
The horrific dog-meat trade and consumption is currently being practiced in that city, regardless of the fact that it is illegal under South Korean Law –  the laws are simply not enforced!
The dog and cat meat trades involve extreme and widespread animal cruelty, and the animals suffer unimaginable pain and distress under deliberate torture.
 
We ask you to please watch the videos of South Korea’s dog meat industry: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q
 
 
These poor creatures cannot speak for themselves which is why I am writing on their behalf.
 
I believe that your city wishes to be made aware of this ongoing issue as well, and not want to be affiliated with a city where illegal and immoral torture is being carried out on any animal, and particularly not on those that are loyal, trusting and sentient creatures, which look up to us humans as being their guardians.
 
These illegal trades are still being allowed to continue by Korean authorities – even though there is a large growing opposition from pet owners across South Korea, and throughout the world.
 
So, I am asking you to please speak with your counterparts in Seoul, especially Mayor Won-Soon Park, to urge them to enforce their own laws, not ignore them, and to show compassion towards their companion animals, and respect to their own citizens, by bringing these brutal trades finally to an end!
 
With the Winter Olympics coming up in 2018, this is the time to make change; this is the time to stop the illegal, inhumane and unnecessary cruelty.
 
I know that South Korea has many beautiful, admirable and noble practices and customs worth preserving, but this is not one of them.
 
Thank you for your time and understanding.
Please let me know how you feel about this so often concealed subject, thank you.
 

Sincerely:

Chatham Kent, Canada, friendship city with Seoul Gangbuk-gu, S. Korea

Dear Mayor Smith,
dear Members of the Southwark Council:
 
Seoul Seocho District S. Korea became Friendship city with The London Borough of Southwark in 2009.
The horrific dog-meat trade and consumption is currently being practiced in that city, regardless of the fact that it is illegal under South Korean Law –  the laws are simply not enforced!
The dog and cat meat trades involve extreme and widespread animal cruelty, and the animals suffer unimaginable pain and distress under deliberate torture.
 
We ask you to please watch the videos of South Korea’s dog meat industry: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q
 
 
These poor creatures cannot speak for themselves which is why I am writing on their behalf.
 
I believe that your city wishes to be made aware of this ongoing issue as well, and not want to be affiliated with a city where illegal and immoral torture is being carried out on any animal, and particularly not on those that are loyal, trusting and sentient creatures, which look up to us humans as being their guardians.
 
These illegal trades are still being allowed to continue by Korean authorities – even though there is a large growing opposition from pet owners across South Korea, and throughout the world.
 
So, I am asking you to please speak with your counterparts in Seoul Seocho District, especially Mayor Eun-Hee Cho, to urge them to enforce their own laws, not ignore them, and to show compassion towards their companion animals, and respect to their own citizens, by bringing these brutal trades finally to an end!
 
With the Winter Olympics coming up in 2018, this is the time to make change; this is the time to stop the illegal, inhumane and unnecessary cruelty.
 
I know that South Korea has many beautiful, admirable and noble practices and customs worth preserving, but this is not one of them.
 
Thank you for your time and understanding.
Please let me know how you feel about this so often concealed subject, thank you.

So, I am asking you to please speak with your counterparts in Seoul Gwanak-gu, especially Mayor Jong-Pil Yoo, to urge them to enforce their own laws, not ignore them, and to show compassion towards their companion animals, and respect to their own citizens, by bringing these brutal trades finally to an end!
 
With the Winter Olympics coming up in 2018, this is the time to make change; this is the time to stop the illegal, inhumane and unnecessary cruelty.
 
I know that South Korea has many beautiful, admirable and noble practices and customs worth preserving, but this is not one of them.
 
Thank you for your time and understanding.
Please let me know how you feel about this so often concealed subject, thank you.
 

Sincerely:

Dear Mayor Khan,
Members of the London Assembly,
 
Seoul became Friendship city with London in 2015.
 
The horrific dog-meat trade and consumption is currently being practiced in that city, regardless of the fact that it is illegal under South Korean Law –  the laws are simply not enforced!
The dog and cat meat trades involve extreme and widespread animal cruelty, and the animals suffer unimaginable pain and distress under deliberate torture.
 
We ask you to please watch the videos of South Korea’s dog meat industry: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q
 
 
These poor creatures cannot speak for themselves which is why I am writing on their behalf.
 
I believe that your city wishes to be made aware of this ongoing issue as well, and not want to be affiliated with a city where illegal and immoral torture is being carried out on any animal, and particularly not on those that are loyal, trusting and sentient creatures, which look up to us humans as being their guardians.
 
These illegal trades are still being allowed to continue by Korean authorities – even though there is a large growing opposition from pet owners across South Korea, and throughout the world.
 
So, I am asking you to please speak with your counterparts in Seoul, especially  Mayor Won-Soon Park, to urge them to enforce their own laws, not ignore them, and to show compassion towards their companion animals, and respect to their own citizens, by bringing these brutal trades finally to an end!
 
With the Winter Olympics coming up in 2018, this is the time to make change; this is the time to stop the illegal, inhumane and unnecessary cruelty.
 
I know that South Korea has many beautiful, admirable and noble practices and customs worth preserving, but this is not one of them.
 
Thank you for your time and understanding.
Please let me know how you feel about this so often concealed subject, thank you.
