#42: Pet Custody Rules & Post-Conference Catch-Up

Hosts Peter & Camille catch up on the Canadian Animal Law Conference, Animal Justice’s recent court cases, and what the federal election results mean for animals.

There’s a lot in the news, including a ruling that animal advocates don’t have public interest standing to challenge retailers for selling cruel glue traps, an Alberta case that discusses animals as property, and an important piece arguing that fish welfare should be part of the national conversation.

For our main segment, you’ll enjoy listening to an interview with Professor Jodi Lazare of the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie, who sat down with Peter to discuss pet custody issues.

This episode’s hero is the city of Halifax for considering a ban on using animals for entertainment at city properties, and the zero is Northern Harvest Sea Farms, a fish farm operator responsible for the recent deaths of 1.8 million salmons in Newfoundland.
