This episode of Paw & Order features a special guest interview with University of Alberta law professor Cameron Jeffries. He breaks down the recent Federal Court of Appeal decision rejecting the Trans Mountain pipeline, and explains why the ruling is good news for orca whales who are at risk from increased oil tanker traffic.

Then, Camille and Peter bring you all the latest animal law news, including Camille’s new op-ed piece arguing against cat declawing, a Toronto Veg Food Fest update, and Camille winning the Toronto Vegetarian Association’s 2018 Compassion for Animals Award. Plus, the hosts weigh in on why ritual slaughter is still legal in Canada, leg-hold fur traps maiming companion animals, and California voting to ban cosmetic tests on animals.

This week’s hero is the Ottawa Police for tranquilizing a bear instead of using lethal action, and the zero is the Manitoba government for subsidizing cruel jacket company Canada Goose’s latest manufacturing plant.
