Camille Labchuck, Executive-Director of Animal Justice Canada, an organisation leading the legal fight for animals in Canada. As an animal rights lawyer and advocate, her work has exposed and documented cruelty, and protected animal rights activists.

This discussion will be moderated by Ali Pester, Associate at Silver Pennypacker Barristers, and former Osgoode Hall Animal Justice President.
