In this episode, co-hosts Camille Labchuk and Jessica Scott-Reid discuss the Canadian Animal Law Conference, including the Brooks Institute's involvement in the Scholars Track and the Brooks Animal Law Digest

In the news, Camille and Jessica discuss a new survey revealing that most Canadians favour government financial support for fruit and vegetable production over meat, eggs, and dairy, heated carriage “counter protests” in the Niagara Region, Canada Goose mistreating its workers, US import permits granted for the transfer of five belugas from Marineland with conditions that they cannot be bred or trained to perform, public consultations open to help set regulations for Canada’s anti-whale captivity bill, Toronto police pouring $5.5 million into mounted police, a horse dying during air transport to Japan, and Vancouver Aquarium temporarily closing to “reinvent itself”.

The main topic is an update on ag gag laws in Canada, including police handing out tickets to protesters outside of Fearmans Pork slaughterhouse, Ontario releasing info on draft regulations for ag gag Bill 156, a new provision under the bill going into effect that now prohibits advocates from stopping transport trucks, and Manitoba launching public consultations for its own troubling ag gag legislation.
