Tory MPP Frank Klees Takes Action

Ontario Tory MPP Frank Klees is tabling a motion Monday to bring the OSPCA to heel.
The motion asks the government to amend legislation to ensure that it has oversight of the animal organization.
Klees said the province must split the animal protection enforcement and the charity animal shelter functions of the OSPCA.
"It's a clear conflict; I think the events of the last number of weeks demonstrates that," he said.
Klees is also launching a public petition to support those actions.
The OSPCA came under heavy criticism for opting to euthanize animals with ringworm, a treatable condition, at its Newmarket shelter.
The OSPCA has launched an independent investigation into the incident.
