#2: What Does Canadian Federalism Mean for Animal Law?

Animal Justice 3 February 2018 9

February 2, 2018

Welcome to Episode 2 of Paw & Order! Tune in as hosts Peter Sankoff and Camille Labchuk dive into an important topic in animal law: Federalism. In other words, how does the division of powers between federal and provincial governments affect animals? Unlike many other countries, Canada has no national animal welfare legislation. Here’s your chance to understand why that is, and why it’s such a serious problem.

But that’s not all! The hosts also discuss Camille’s new cat, a guilty plea in the biggest animal cruelty case in Canadian history, and a Dutch police force dedicated to protecting animals.
