Ads Challenge Canadian University’s Use of Piglets
Action Alert from


Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)
March 2014


Today, PCRM filed a complaint with the Quebec City Director of Criminal and Penal Proceedings in Canada, explaining that Laval University is violating the province's animal cruelty law by using and killing piglets. Please help this effort by asking the dean of Laval University Faculty of Medicine, Rénald Bergeron, M.D., to end the use of animals for pediatrics residency training today.

Sign an online petition.

And/or better yet, make direct contact:

Rénald Bergeron, M.D.

I am writing to ask that you immediately end the use of piglets in Laval University’s pediatrics residency program. As dean, it is your responsibility to ensure that Laval provides the best education possible.

Simulators such as Laerdal’s infant simulators SimBaby and SimNewB, CAE Healthcare’s Babysim, and Simulab’s TraumaChild, are available and widely used for the procedures taught in this course.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
