Fellow Canadian stepping in here. I'm going to encourage you to pick up a newspaper every once in a while. In fact, in your own province last year there was a case of 30 horses starving to death on a ranch.
Horses are starving in Canada.
Horses are starving in the USA.
If there were poor people and horses in Antarctica, you could bet your last dollar they'd be starving there too.
