    What are our democractic rights? In Canada we choose people who form the government and they make decisions for us. This is called represented democracy.

  5. Biased or Unbiased? Nine Horses Perish: Calgary Stampede Death Toll Continues to Rise. Source: PETA The Calgary Stampede touts itself as the “Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth,” but animals pay a high price at the annual rodeo and exhibition..

Many horses have suffered and died during these races, including six in 2002 alone. There is nothing entertaining about a “sport” in which animals pay with their lives.
