Camille and Peter are together in person in Ottawa for this episode, so it’s fitting that federal animal protection legislation is the emphasis of Episode 19! It’s the two-year anniversary of the Liberal government killing an important animal cruelty bill, and you’ll find out what, if anything has changed since then. (Spoiler alert, not much.) The hosts also give the latest on why some Conservative senators are still blocking the whale & dolphin anti-captivity bill, and what’s next for this legislation.

Also on the new agenda is the USMCA trade deal, why Canada’s dairy industry isn’t happy about its impact on supply management, and how media coverage of dairy supply management misses the mark by failing to point out the animal suffering inherent in milk production.

Peter gives a recap on his recent presentation at the first-ever VegFest Edmonton, and his exciting discovery that Calgary-based vegan fashion boutique The Grinning Goat has named an entire line of animal-free boots after Animal Justice staff and advisors! Plus, Camille (who’s not a sports fan) went to her first-ever CFL game to cheer on a plant-based athlete.

All this and more on Episode 19 of Paw & Order, Canada’s only animal law podcast!
