Repeal Bill 156: Justice for Regan
July 12, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
A peaceful protest will be held at Premier Doug Ford’s residence, as we continue to fight for Regan Russell who was killed by a transport truck carrying pigs into Sofina’s Fearmans slaughterhouse.
Under the Ford Government: Bill 156 has passed, which conceals abuse on factory farms and transport trucks carrying animals to slaughter. Not only are the lives of farmed animals not protected here in Ontario but the bill is meant to silence whistleblowers from exposing any type of abuse that has been documented. Regan, just like many in Ontario want to see this bill abolished, as there is no room in society for animal abuse, of any kind.
Bill 156 also gives animal agriculture a free pass to assault and cause harm to those trying to protect animals. Regan’s death may in part have been the result of that.
Our goal is to demand that Mr. Ford convert Bill 156 into Regan’s law, which protects farmed animals from abuse as well as the whistleblowers who expose the suffering of animals. Mr. Ford needs to know what Regan Russell stood for and how Bill 156 has failed her.
