One of the largest petitions in Canadian history — calling for a ban on cosmetic testing on animals — was delivered to Parliament Hill on Monday.

The petition, organized by The Body Shop Canada and Cruelty-Free International, has collected over 625,000 Canadian signatures to support the ban.

Along with delivering the petition, supporters and politicians rallied outside of Parliament Hill and took part in The Body Shop’s Pet March, in a demonstration against animal testing.
