More Debate on the Jane Goodall Act

Senator Karen Sorensen rose to give the ninth speech on Bill S-241, the Jane Goodall Act, since it was introduced in March 2022. She responded to questions raised about why the proposed Bill uses an American organization, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), as the standard for animal care organizations that would be allowed to continue to operate after the Bill is passed, rather than Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums (CAZA), explaining that the AZA has higher standards than CAZA.
