Animal Justice 20 March 2021 31


Background

In episode 75 of the Paw & Order podcast, co-hosts Camille Labchuk and Peter Sankoff give their legal analysis of three Canadian dog abuse cases that are making headlines right now. This includes a case from Newfoundland involving man who was acquitted of cruelty charges because the court ruled he didn’t “wilfully” starve his beagles into emaciation, a puppy mill breeder acquitted of cruelty charges in Nova Scotia, and a dog abuse case being appealed in Alberta to determine appropriate sentencing. Animal Justice will seek leave to intervene in this important case to highlight what principles of sentencing actually matter to animals.

In the news, Camille and Peter discuss new updates to ag gag laws in Canada, including Animal Justice’s new constitutional challenge to strike down Ontario’s ag gag law, two new Manitoba ag gag bills, Bill 62 and Bill 57, and Parliament voting to send a federal ag gag bill to committee. The hosts also discuss the good news that Correction Service Canada’s proposed prison goat factory farm project has been temporarily suspended, and they remind our listeners that the deadline for submissions to present at Animal Justice’s 3rd annual Canadian Animal Law Conference is April 2.

The Hero of the episode is Sam March, a pupil barrister from the UK. who’s creating a vegan barrister wig made from hemp instead of horse hair. The Zero is Kijiji for being such an easy avenue for puppy mill sales.
