Peter and Camille are reunited! After a few summertime episodes with guest hosts, Paw & Order is back to its regularly-scheduled programming.

Freshly back from a trip to Europe, Camille fills listeners in on the state of vegan croissants in France, her recent speaking engagements in the UK, and why the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics Summer School was the best animal law event. Ever.

Then, the hosts break down recent news affecting animals. You’ll learn about a new court case striking down restrictions on charities engaging in political activities, and why it could re-shape the landscape for animal protection organizations in Canada. Camille talks about her Global TV interview about the cruise line that gunned down a polar bear in Norway, and why so-called ecotourism isn’t always a good thing. There’s a new poll in Quebec by the Montreal SPCA showing that 72% of voters want parties to have animal welfare policies for the upcoming provincial election, and the hosts also discuss a grieving mother orca whale who has been carrying her deceased calf through the ocean for over a week. Animals grieve, just like us. Plus, could the UK be headed toward a total ban on fur?

Our hero this week is the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics, for hosting an incredible global gathering of animal lawyers. And our zero (not for the first time and likely not the last!) is the Canadian Food Inspection Agency for flat-out refusing to enforce transport laws for horses being shipped to slaughter in Japan.

All this and more on the latest episode of Paw & Order, Canada’s only animal law podcast!
