Hosts Peter Sankoff and Camille Labchuk bring you a very special episode, live from the Animal Justice 10-year anniversary gala! The gala brought together many of Canada’s top animal rights lawyers, academics, and advocates, so Peter took the opportunity to interview them.
You’ll hear from Alanna Devine of the Montreal SPCA, Vancouver lawyer Rebeka Breder, Animal Justice’s own Anna Pippus, Kimberly Carroll, Nick Wright, and Shannon Milling, longtime supporter Rajiv Nambiar, MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, and law professors / academics Valéry Giroux, Katie Sykes, Jodi Lazare, Angela Lee, and Lesli Bisgould.
Plus, the hosts discuss the tragic Senate spectacle of Bill S-203 being repeatedly blocked from reaching a vote, Montreal’s new ban on horse carriages, and more than 70 rabbis worldwide urging people of Jewish faith to embrace veganism.
Learn why this week’s hero is MP Robert Sopuck, best known for spearheading efforts to block improvements to Canada’s animal cruelty laws. Happily, he won’t run again in the next election! (And check out Peter’s video debunking Sopuck’s misinformation about an animal cruelty bill.)
This week’s zero goes to our justice system for prosecuting an activist who exposed horrific suffering on Ontario mink farms, while the abusive farms go unpunished.
