I believe that every good
idea can be modified and improved upon, and my ideas are
no exception. In my report,
"This Dog Don't Hunt: A Critical
Analysis of the BCSPCA Community Consultation Process, The
Independent Panel's Summary Report and Recommendations,
_ The SPCA Preliminary Action Plans," I call for
a BCSPCA ombudsman and increased government involvement.
I intend to develop the concept in a future report; the
ideal way to accomplish that, of course, is to consult animal
lovers. So please send your opinions and recommendations.
The CYA Board has designed two
petitions or you can draft
a submission that is based purely on your own concerns.
It will pass your submissions on to me for inclusion in
my report. I thank CYA for and appreciate its support and
initiative to take the concept to the public. Many dedicated
animal lovers both within and outside of the SPCA sincerely
want the best outcome for both the organization and the
animals in its care. It is the largest animal welfare fund
in BC. Its survival is critical. Research
shows that the general public supports independent bodies
to oversee charities and to protect donors, even when a
charity has not suffered a scandal as the SPCA has. I believe
an independent body to ensure that it is truly accountable,
transparent and fair is the only way to guarantee the mission,
proper priorities and the best possible care for shelter
animals in BC. I want to present the SPCA with a model that
the public prefers, an ombudsman solely for the SPCA or
an ombudsman for all animal organizations and facilities.
Public input and debate can only lead to quality care for
animals. That is my aim, and I hope it is one you share.
