It’s the 50th episode of the Paw & Order podcast! In this episode, Camille sits down with Animal Justice Party MP Emma Hurst, serving in the Upper House of New South Wales Parliament, Australia. Emma is one of three MPs with the Animal Justice Party giving a much-needed political voice for animals.
In the news, Peter and Camille discuss vegan cheese maker Miyoko’s Creamery’s labelling lawsuit against the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the Order of Ontario given out to Fur Institute of Canada’s Neal Jotham, exciting new plans to build a whale sanctuary in Nova Scotia for whales rescued from captivity, and China shutting down some wildlife farms in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak.
The zero of this episode is Ontario Ag Minister Ernie Hardeman for his op-ed in the Hamilton spectator claiming that animal abuse on farms is a rarity (it’s rampant) and that these animals are adequately protected by the province’s laws (they aren’t).
