#60: Meat Industry Backlash

Animal Justice 8 August 2020 6


Background
share close


August 7, 2020

In this episode of the Paw & Order podcast, we’re
thrilled to welcome journalist Jessica Scott-Reid as a new permanent co-host of
Paw & Order! Peter will still co-host the podcast as well, and will make an
appearance in every second episode.

Jessica and Camille catch up on some important life and food updates, including Camille able to enjoy the beaches in PEI after her two weeks of isolation, and discovering all of the amazing new vegan options that the island has to offer. Our hosts also discuss Beyond Meat’s ground-breaking first-ever TV commercial, and that JUST Egg finally making its way into Canada.

Camille reminds listeners that tickets to the online Canadian Animal Law Conference
are now available, and that the agenda will be released soon.

As always, there’s lots to cover in the news. This includes
a horrific pig
truck rollover
near Kitchener, Ontario, resulting in charges for careless
driving and failure to wear a seatbelt—but no charges causing animal suffering,
Quebec authorities investigating
a French bull dog breeder, Alberta loosening regulations to allow farmers and
hunters to sell
meat
without federal or provincial inspection, and two live
chickens
found in a Manitoba landfill among a pile of dead chickens who
were victim to cruel “depopulation” on farms.

For our main topic, Camille and Jessica dive into the
aftermath of Regan Russell’s death, and the reaction from farmers and truckers.

The GoFundMe for the trucker who struck and killed Regan with a slaughter truck has already raised over $100,000. On July 30, a counter protest sprung up outside of Fearmans slaughterhouse, where Regan was killed, during a Toronto Pig Save vigil. Counter protesters screamed at the advocates and made hot dogs in an insensitive act of defiance. But tension between the industry and activists are rising online as well, with escalating verbal abuse and threats. There was even a recent case of physical assault against an anti-horse carriage protester.

This episode’s hero is KFC for planning to add lab-printed meat to its menu, and the zero is the Toronto Zoo after a newborn red panda cub died just a week after they were born.
