#68: Jane Goodall Act Will Outlaw Captivity of Great Apes & Elephants

Animal Justice 28 November 2020 27

November 27, 2020

In Episode 68 of the Paw & Order podcast, co-hosts Camille Labchuk and Peter Sankoff discuss an exciting new Senate bill called the Jane Goodall Act, that would outlaw the captivity of great apes and elephants, shut down the ivory trade, and give some animals legal representation in court. This groundbreaking legislation was recently introduced by the legendary Senator Murray Sinclair, who has proven to be both a hero for humans and animals alike.

In 2019, Canada compassionately banned the captivity of whales and dolphins, and the Jane Goodall Act is building on this exciting progress!

In this episode, we congratulate our third co-host Jessica-Scott Reid for winning The Fur-Bearers Clements Award for Outstanding Media. Way to go, Jessica!

Animal Justice’s holiday party is going virtual this year, and you’re invited to join us on December 11 from 8:30pm-9:30pm ET! Register today to claim your virtual spot.

In the news, Camille and Peter discuss a new Ontario advisory table to improve animal welfare, a New Zealand court ruling that declares cruel farrowing crates for pigs are unlawful, also in New Zealand, a rodeo farmer was convicted of animal cruelty, and Longueuil, Quebec scrapping plans to kill 15 deer after public pressure. COVID-19 outbreaks in mink fur farms is a hot and important topic these days, with a new op-eds from Jessica-Scott Reid, Michèle Hamers of World Animal Protection, and a problematic, one-sided piece from Postmedia. It’s time to shut these farms down!

On the horizon is a criminal trial viewable via Zoom regarding animal advocate Malcolm Klimowicz who is being charged for break and enter after he exposed horrific conditions at Ontario fur farms.

The hero is North Carolina Judge Stephanie Thacker who said strong words in court regarding the harm that industrial farming causes to animals, workers, and the environment in lawsuit against world’s largest pork producer Smithfields.

The zero is the managers at Tyson Foods Waterloo slaughterhouse who actually bet money on how many of its workers would be infected from COVID-19. Just appalling.
