In Episode 7, Peter talks about breed-specific legislation (BSL) with Alanna Devine—our very first podcast guest! Alanna is a lawyer and director of animal advocacy at the Montreal SPCA. She has played a key role in the legal fight against Montreal’s pit bull ban, and a proposed provincial breed ban in Quebec. Tune in to learn why BSL is unscientific, ineffective, expensive, and spells a death sentence for innocent dogs.

Hosts Peter and Camille also take on the federal government’s new criminal justice legislation, Bill C-75, discussing why some of its reforms may accidentally be good for animals, and what’s still missing. (Hint, hint—no improvements to Canada’s terrible animal cruelty laws.) Plus, the hosts talk about a shocking new live export investigation out of Australia, a Globe & Mail op ed about humanewashing (our Episode 6 topic!), a rodeo report out of New Zealand, San Francisco’s groundbreaking ban on fur sales, and animal cruelty charges against a B.C. petting zoo.
