Marineland Awaits Disclosure in Dolphin Show Prosecution

Criminal proceedings against Marineland continue on Criminal Code charges relating to dolphin shows during the summer and fall of 2021. Aquatic animal shows for entertainment are illegal under Canada’s Criminal Code; however, Marineland has previously indicated that the shows were for educational purposes, not for entertainment. After Marineland’s first appearance on February 14th, 2022, lawyer Scott Fenton received initial disclosure from police, and proceeded to request further disclosure from the prosecutor (a normal exchange in criminal proceedings). The matter is set to return for another update on April 20th, 2022. Read more here.
