Stop Bill 156

June 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Stop bill 156

Join us, with masks, gloves and your voice.

The birth of an decades old social justice movement?

The Ontario Government has rattled the cages of journalists, lawyers, and international animal rights organizations over the introduction of its ag-gag bill 156.

Camille Labchuk of Animal Justice says: “Canada unfortunately has some of the worst animal protection laws in the Western world, and Ontario’s ag gag bill is about to make a bad situation far worse”.

We will make a last in-person attempt to influence the vote which is likely to happen on June 16th. We will unfurl a massive banner outside the Legislative building while respecting the social distancing requirements of the coronavirus era.

The irony? The human use and abuse of animals is how 3 out of 4 pandemics are caused. Ontario’s animal farms have been documented as filthy places, with rats and flies joining the miserable animals inside. The bill aims to silence whistleblowers, just when their eyes are needed to protect the world.

Please follow these organizations that have presented to the committee:
Animal Justice
Animal Alliance of Canada
Canadian Coalition for Farm Animals
Humane Society International
Last Chance for Animals (LCA)
Mercy For Animals
Rose’s Law: Canada Animal Bill of Rights Pressure Campaign
Toronto Pig Save
World Animal Protection Canada
