Anti-Speciesism Open House
May 25, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
SPECIESISM is the belief in human superiority leading to the exploitation of other animals. MAPLE LEAF FOODS is profiting from speciesism— exploiting non-human animals for their flesh.
Michael McCain, the CEO of Maple Leaf, promised activists that he wants dialogue regarding a new slaughterhouse his company is building in London, Ontario. Despite their request that he attend an open house regarding the slaughterhouse project, he didn’t show. Activists still attended, however, setting up their own booth on speciesism and advocating for chickens amongst the Maple Leaf exhibitors.
Now it is time to bring anti-speciesism to him! We’re peacefully bringing OUR OWN open house & teach-in to Michael McCain’s neighborhood to show Maple Leaf they’re on the WRONG SIDE.
Maple Leaf says they care about transparency, animals and doing the right thing, but their actions are showing quite the opposite story.
If they care about transparency, where is their policy on speciesism? If they care about animals, why do they refuse to recognize their rights to their own lives?
If they care about doing the right thing, they should be CLOSING DOWN slaughterhouses, NOT BUILDING NEW ONES.
Join us and show Maple Leaf Foods that SPECIESISM is BAD BUSINESS!
We will meet at the corner of College and Palmerston Street.
