Camille is joined by guest host Samantha Kompa, an Ontario human rights lawyer, to discuss protecting ethical vegans against discrimination in the workplace, hospitals, schools, prisons, and more. Camille and Sam fill listeners in on their recent presentation at the International Vegan Rights Alliance symposium in Scotland, and delve down into how provincial human rights laws and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms can protect people who believe it’s wrong to harm animals. Plus, they share details of some of their delicious plant-based food finds in Scotland!

Camille and Sam also discuss the many ways animals are suffering in Canada’s recent heatwave, and the hypocrisy of prosecuting dogs left in cars but never going after transporters who truck pigs in sweltering hot conditions. They give the details on new footage of horrific suffering on B.C. egg farms, and speculate on the future of Marineland after the death of its owner.

This episode’s hero is the town of Banff, for outlawing noisy fireworks, and the zero is Senator Don Plett, for obstructing animal protection legislation.
