Justin Jarvis - Candidate for Stuart - ALP Read his letter in local paper
Hon John Hill - Member for Kaurna
- ALP & Minister for Animal Welfare •
John Hill is reponsible for
the animal welfare portfolio. For over a year his office
refused to take any notice of the hours of undeniable
video evidence presented to them dipicting blatant acts
of cruelty to animals undertaken at rodeos. During the
state election, Mr Hill started acknowleging this issue,
however, no improvements have been made for animals
in recent rodeos and they continue to suffer. In
21 November [recorded in Hansard] Mr Hill expressed
support of rodeo. Now that he has personally been given
the footage, we expect him to change his mind, regardless
of his portfolio.
