Three slates

List of fifty candidates for new Toronto Humane Society board of directors released.

The list includes contenders of every stripe – business executives, veterinarians, lawyers, volunteer dog walkers and a Tennis Canada executive. A source said that the list consists of three likely slates of 15 members and a handful of independent candidates, including acting THS president Bob Hambley.

Some candidates have ties to at least two reform groups, the Association to Reform the THS and Representing Animals in Need, and others appear to have ties to the former board of directors who were charged with animal cruelty in November.

“A fresh start will require more than just a coat of paint,” said Marcie Laking, a former THS employee, member of ART and one of the candidates. “It will require new policies, new procedures and new leadership.”
