#Canada Passes #Ban Making It Illegal To Keep #Dolphins And #Whales In Captivity

Thank you Canada!! Tammie Brown did you see this.

The legislation is nicknamed the “Free Willy” bill, after the 1993 movie

On Monday, the country’s House of Commons voted to pass Bill S-203, the Ending the Captivity of Whales and Dolphins Act, over three years after it was first introduced in late 2015, according to the CBC.

The bill bans importing, exporting, keeping and breeding whales, dolphins and porpoises, as well as making the animals perform for entertainment. Lawbreakers could face a fine of up to $150,000 U.S. dollars.
