Episode 65 of the Paw & Order podcast kicks off with a vegan Thanksgiving recap from hosts Camille Labchuk and Jessica Scott-Reid, and details from Camille’s trip to two wonderful animal sanctuaries.
We’re thrilled to announce that the 3rd annual #Voiceless4AnimalJustice campaign is just around the corner! This three-week crowdfundraising campaign empowers supporters to raise funds to support Animal Justice’s legal challenges to Canada’s dangerous ag gag laws and wraps up with a 24-hour vow of silence for animals who are silenced by ag gag laws. #Voiceless4AnimalJustice 2020 runs October 23-November 14, 2020. Sign up now to join the movement!
A reminder that all Canadian Animal Law Conference sessions can be accessed at a reduced price, giving you full access to the recorded sessions for 60 days.
In the news, Camille and Jessica discuss a great investigative two-part series from CBC’s The National exposing Canada’s puppy mill importation crisis, a man sentenced for two years for drowning a cat—but is being denied psychiatric help in jail, vegan brand Tofurky suing Louisiana over discriminatory plant-based labelling laws, and Journal of Food Law & Policy devoting its current issue to milk.
For the main topic, Jessica speaks with environmental researcher Nicholas Carter (check out his free library PlantBasedData.org full of great environmental, health, and zoonosis research) to discuss the documentary, “Kiss the Ground” and debunk regenerative agriculture and “holistic” cow grazing as a viable solution to climate change. We need to move away from animal farming all together to combat the climate crisis!
This episode’s hero is Jann Arden for helping bring national attention to Canada’s brutal live horse export trade. The episode zero is the B.C. government for funding a wolf eradication program to protect the profits of animal farmers.
