Toronto Slaughterhouses Exposed!

October 30, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

Outreach at the main intersection near the three slaughterhouses remaining in Toronto: Ryding-Regency Slaughterhouse, St. Helen’s Slaughterhouse and Maple Leaf Slaughterhouse. Together, they kill over 1/4-million animals every day!
For several years, activists have been holding vigils at the slaughterhouses but for the most part, the public passing through this neighbourhood have no idea that these horrible places are still operating.
On September 19, 2015, we changed all that! 65 of us lined the intersection at St. Clair and Keele holding signs that named and pointed to the slaughterhouses and demanded an end to the killing. The response was overwhelming! Once they knew the truth, people honked, waved, gave thumbs up, and peace signs. They took leaflets and asked questions.
We are here to continue this presence every Tuesday morning from 8:30 – 9:30 am, right before the weekly Cow Vigil with The Save movement: https://www.facebook.com/events/405082999901331/
More and more people are becoming aware of the nightmare for animals ‘Just Around the Corner’.
Our goal is simple – to engage with the public who passes through the neighbourhood, have a dialogue about the animal death camps hidden behind the homes and stores. We believe that the knowledge of these atrocities taking place so close to home will have an impact, asking everyone to think about the injustice behind it all and to join us in the fight to close all slaughterhouses!
Please join us!
Meet on the SW corner of St Clair and Keele every Tuesday morning from 8:30-9:30am! Signs and leaflets will be provided, but feel free to bring your own! We will also have chalk for chalkitivism. Bring your positive energy! Not only will you raise awareness about the suffering of animals but you will also meet incredible people.
Our efforts are reaching people and making a difference!
