This episode of the Paw & Order podcast kicks off with a recap of the online Canadian Animal Law Conference, which was a smashing success! A reminder that all conference sessions can be accessed at a reduced price, giving you full access to the recorded sessions for 60 days.

Peter and Camille also catch up on what’s new—including Camille heading back to Toronto after two months in PEI, and Peter winning the Canadian Lawyer Magazine’s 2020 award for the Top 25 Most Influential Lawyers!

In the news, Camille and Peter discuss Hylife foods receiving a $75,000 fine for causing pain and distress to pigs, Ontario opening up public consultation on regulations pertaining to ag gag Bill 156, and Manitoba opening up public consultation regarding potential ag gag laws in the province.

For the main topic, Peter interviews Justice for Animals Chair and Associate Professor at the University of San Francisco School of Law Matthew Liebman about representing Justice the Horse in a groundbreaking lawsuit against Justice’s his former owner who severely neglected him. The two dive into the complexity of seeking legal standing for animals in court.

This episode’s zero is National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) for moving the deadline from 2024 to 2029 to update its codes of practice and remove the use of cruel gestation crates for pigs.

The hero is Switzerland for its top court allowing citizens to vote on whether monkeys should have fundamental rights.
