#66: Dr. Pamela Fergusson on Deceitful Dairy Propaganda

Animal Justice 30 October 2020 5


Background
share close

Episode 66 of the Paw & Order podcast starts with a recap of Ontario Farmer magazine’s two page coverage of the Canadian Animal Law Conference hosted in September by Animal Justice and the University of Toronto Faculty of Law—when the industry is paying attention, that means we’re on the right track!

Camille lets listeners know about the upcoming online National Animal Welfare Conference taking place April 6-8, 2021 hosted by Humane Canada. Submissions are now welcome.

We’re also excited to announce that Animal Justice’s animal law club is behind UBC Allard School of Law’s brand-new pro-bono animal law clinic, aimed at helping low-income individuals with their animal law cases.

A reminder that #Voiceless4AnimalJustice kicked off last week! You can join us in raising funds to help stop ag gag laws and by taking a 24-hour vow of silence for animals on November 14. Click here to join the movement or to support the campaign.

In the news, Camille and Peter discuss a story about how the justice system failed a family whose dog was shot and killed by their neighbour, farmers having problems slaughtering animals because of a shortage in inspectors, a Quebec duck slaughterhouse having its license suspended for animal cruelty violations, and an EU ruling stating that veggie burgers can still be labelled “burgers”—a win for common sense!

For the main topic, Camille interviews plant-based dietician Dr. Pamela Fergusson to discuss Big Dairy propaganda, a new TVO partnership with Dairy Farmers of Ontario, and overall government support for this unhealthy, unsustainable, inhumane, and increasingly irrelevant industry.

This episode’s hero is UNB student Rachael Mills for publishing an op-ed on issues in animal testing, and this episode’s zero is Canada’s mink farmers for standing “on-guard” as mink farms in Europe and the US grapple with COVID-19 outbreaks and conduct massive mink culls to stop the spread. Let’s just shut this cruel and dwindling industry down already.
