Toronto Star Article Highlights Broken Promises in Canada’s Egg Industry

Mercy for Animals corporate relations specialist, PJ Nyman, penned an article for the Toronto Star describing the failure of the Canadian egg industry to shift away from caged eggs. They describe how after a series of hatchery videos resulted in public outrage in 2016, major grocers in Canada announced they would stop selling caged eggs by 2025. Now, “six years later and three years from the deadline . . . shockingly, more than twenty million [chickens] are still in cages.” Nyman highlights that the National Farmed Animal Care Council Codes on the subject will allow battery cage usage until 2036.
