Expose Animal Cruelty in Livestock Industry

Target: The Honourable Doug Ford, Premier of Ontario, Canada

Goal: Protect animals from horrendous abuse in the livestock industry.

Animal cruelty often goes unpunished due to Ontario’s restrictions on its investigation and exposure. It is illegal to go undercover to expose animal cruelty, unsafe working conditions, and food safety risks, that are common in animal agriculture. These restrictions are known as “Security from Trespass and Protecting Food Safety Act, 202” also known as “agricultural gag” or “ag-gag” laws.

Not only does this bill cover up the frequently occurring abuse of animals that is often criminal, but the new law also invades people’s fundamental rights to free assembly and free speech.

Farm animals in Canada are not protected under the law, and the majority of what happens within our food system is concealed from the public. We should increase protections for farmed animals and transparency within our food system, not diminish them.

Sign this petition to stop the “ag-gag” law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Honourable Mr. Ford,

The Security from Trespass and Protecting Food Safety Act, 202, is a ghastly piece of legislation that allows animal cruelty to pass unnoticed. This bill does not protect farmed animals, but subjects them to more harm.

Many factory farmers want to conceal animal cruelty from the public and you willingly oblige them for your own gain. The “ag-gag” law makes it easy for factory farms to hide the oftentimes criminal animal abuse.

Not only do you support hiding cruelty, but you also approve of infringing on our fundamental rights to free speech and free assembly. The people have the right to obtain evidence of and expose the cruel nature of this industry and advocate for change.

Animals in Canada are unprotected under the law and now you deliberately endanger them. You must increase the protections for these animals and transparency within our food system and not diminish them. Stop the Security from Trespass and Protecting Food Safety Act, 202 and let the exposure of animal cruelty become the downfall of factory farming.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Animals raised for our consumption are so badly abused. It needs to stop. Transparency is the door to combat such cruel acts done to animals raised for food. It needs to be illegal to conceal any factory farming location. Workers beat animals, punch them, have sex with them, it’s like Hell running over. If someone is caught doing this to animals then they need to be fixed immediately. If they value their job then they need to do the best they can to deserve the job. Cruelty is not apart of the job. There needs to be cameras with live feed !!!!!!

    Manitoba is considering the same thing. Just disgusting how the lives of animals are worthless to many human beings. Instead of passing laws to hide the abuse and cruelty these animals endure maybe you should stop catering to big Ag and start caring about the welfare of animals!!!!!!!

  3. people are horrible should be punished real good

  4. All animal abusers internationally must have the death penalty enforced on them!

  5. Your slaughter houses/ factory farms are the same as in the U.S. First of all it has to be a pretty awful job if one is not a farmer. These animals are pushed, prodded, hit because they don’t understand what is wanted of them.
    Many years ago a movie was made about
    Temple Grandin an autistic young woman who lived on a cattle ranch. She observed the animals and their reaction to stress. As an adult she worked in slaughter houses to try to get the curcuit changed so that the animals were calm as they approached
    the killing site. They were not rushed, abused. But, of course, the pace was slower so the money hungry
    owners were losing money. I would rather eat meat that was not abused, or scared shitless because $5 is being lost. The movie is true.

    I want undercover people in the factory farms and slaughter houses and Premarin farms -because great physical and psychological harm is
    being done to our meat & medical products.
    A lot of information is coming out about the detrimental effects of constant stress and inflammation in humans. Although you may hate people who kill these animals it is the bosses who set the horrific standards-
    faster, and faster, don’t care if that chicken is still alive when it is thrown into the boing water, just keep up the pace. People having to work under such conditions take it out on the animals.

  6. Doug Fraud doesn’t care – he implemented and passed this bill. He cares about one thing only – kissing the asses of his donors, many of whom are in the agri-business.

    Period.

  7. Go vegan save lives!
