#43: Ontario PAWS Act Brings in Public Animal Law Enforcement System

In Episode 43, hosts Peter and Camille discuss some big animal law news: Ontario is moving toward the country’s first fully-public animal welfare law enforcement system. Learn why the Provincial Animal Welfare Services (PAWS) Act, could hold real promise for animals, as the hosts go over the proposed legislation. In the news, New York City just banned foie gras, and the world’s oldest fur auction house is closing because banks are getting out of the fur business and refusing financing. An important legal challenge to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency over exporting horses for slaughter in Japan was argued recently in Vancouver, and four animal advocates are now facing criminal charges after a peaceful sit-in protest at an Alberta turkey farm. This episode’s hero is the Ontario SPCA, which made a bold move by deciding to get out of the animal law enforcement game, and clearing the way for Ontario’s proposed new public enforcement system. And the zero is the Melbourne Cup horse race, exposed on television recently for horrific slaughterhouse killing of race horses.

#43: Ontario PAWS Act Brings in Public Animal Law Enforcement System

#42: Pet Custody Rules & Post-Conference Catch-Up

Hosts Peter & Camille catch up on the Canadian Animal Law Conference, Animal Justice’s recent court cases, and what the federal election results mean for animals. There’s a lot in the news, including a ruling that animal advocates don’t have public interest standing to challenge retailers for selling cruel glue traps, an Alberta case that discusses animals as property, and an important piece arguing that fish welfare should be part of the national conversation. For our main segment, you’ll enjoy listening to an interview with Professor Jodi Lazare of the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie, who sat down with Peter to discuss pet custody issues. This episode’s hero is the city of Halifax for considering a ban on using animals for entertainment at city properties, and the zero is Northern Harvest Sea Farms, a fish farm operator responsible for the recent deaths of 1.8 million salmons in Newfoundland.

Animal Law Clinics in Law Schools

September 6, 2019 It’s our back-to-school show! Peter and Camille discuss animal law clinics at U.S. law schools, and why it’s time for Canada to jump on the bandwagon. Many schools south of the border offer animal law clinics, including two at Lewis & Clark, a new one at Harvard, and Michigan State—all providing incredible learning opportunities for students, and resulting in meaningful work that helps advance animal protection. In the news, we fill you in on how Animal Justice is going to court in October to help fight the removal of anti-Canada Goose ads on Toronto transit shelters; why lawyers are hoping to bring two animal cases to the Supreme Court of Canada (the Lucy the elephant case, and the Santics “dangerous dog” case from Vancouver); and a new study that proves compassion for animals is linked to greater respect for human rights, too. This episode’s hero is the UK Labour Party for it’s strong new animal welfare manifesto, and the zero is the B.C. Conservation Offi...

Animal Law Clinics in Law Schools

Tragic BC Case Means More Dogs Will Face Death Row

August 23, 2019 Hosts Peter & Camille have a jam-packed episode for you, including news about a landmark new conviction in Nova Scotia based on psychological (instead of physical) distress of an animal, calls for charges after a deadly barn fire in Manitoba that saw 800 cows burn alive, and Canada Goose’s supposed backtracking on its false marketing claims that the coyotes and geese killed for their fur-trimmed and down-filled jackets are treated humanely. The main topic is the tragic new British Columbia case of R v Santics, which dealt with a dog named Punky who was sentenced to death after Vancouver city enforcement officials decided he was a dangerous dog. Tragically, the B.C. Court of Appeal upheld a decision to kill Punky, and said the future courts no longer have the ability to impose interim measures for so-called dangerous dogs like muzzling, tethering, and training. Now, if a dog is determined to be dangerous, the judge has no choice but to impose a death sentence. Camill...

Tragic BC Case Means More Dogs Will Face Death Row

#38: Would You Break a Window to Rescue a Dog From a Hot Car? Listen to This First.

August 31, 2019 Peter’s back from summer vacation in Germany, and tells Camille all about the McDonalds McVegan. As always, there’s lot of animal law news, including a Toronto case challenging glue traps for mice, Tofurky’s legal challenge to discriminatory labeling laws for animal-free foods in Arkansas, and Canadian vegan restaurant Grow Your Roots being told to stop using words like “cheese” and “burger”. A notorious live sheep exporter in Australia has finally been charged with animal cruelty, and here at home, Marineland called the cops over a comedic tweet about stealing a walrus, and two Canadian zoos have been listed as among the cruelest in the world. For our main segment, Camille and Peter discuss the summertime epidemic of dogs being left in hot cars, including the laws used to prosecuted those who do so, and the potential legal jeopardy faced by a Good Samaritan in Canada who decides to break a window to rescue a dog at risk. This episode’s hero is the Edmonton P...

Learning From the Past, Looking to the Future With the Canadian Animal Law Conference

July 23, 2019 In Episode 37 of Paw & Order, Camille and Peter catch up on the six horse deaths in Calgary Stampede chuckwagon races (get ready for a lengthy discussion of whether rodeo events are illegal), a great column on why the Stampede needs to ditch animal events, golf course staff running down Canada geese with a golf cart in Edmonton, the fur industry’s paid protesters in California, and the CFIA’s effort to quash a lawsuit about cruel horse transport practices. Camille also sits down with law professor Jodi Lazare of the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University, for chat about the upcoming Canadian Animal Law Conference and its stellar line-up of speakers. This episode’s heroes are a group of law professors (led by University of Toronto professor Angela Fernandez) who filed an amicus brief in the Oregon case of Justice the horse—seeking a groundbreaking court ruling that a horse can sue the woman who abused him. The well-deserved zero is a Montreal horse carriage ...

Learning From the Past, Looking to the Future With the Canadian Animal Law Conference

Time to Stamp out Rodeo Cruelty at the Calgary Stampede

July 5, 2019 In Episode 36 of Paw & Order, Camille is joined by our show producer Shannon Milling, who gets to sit in the co-host chair for a change. Camille and Shannon discuss the start of the Calgary Stampede, which features cruel and torturous rodeo events. Nearly 100 animals have died at the Stampede in the last few decades. Find out why chuckwagon racing, steer wrestling, calf roping, and bronco- and bull-riding and other rodeo events are unjustifiably cruel events, and arguably illegal. And there’s lots in the news! Learn why fireworks are awful for animals and many humans, and why the Assiniboine Zoo in Winnipeg is under pressure to shut down an abusive interactive stingray exhibit after several deaths and injuries. We give an update on Lucy, the ailing elephant at the Edmonton Zoo, who appears to be in worse health than ever before, according to new vet records released. And in B.C., authorities have seized a number of exotic serval cats after the breeder was found keeping...

Time to Stamp out Rodeo Cruelty at the Calgary Stampede

The Battle to Pass Canada’s New Shark Import Ban

June 24, 2019 It was a big month—three animal protection bills passed through Parliament! It’s now illegal to keep whales and dolphins in captivity, import shark fins, sexually abuse animals, and engage in animal fighting. Peter & Camille update listeners on this exciting legislative news, including why a Toronto Star editorial says Canada still has a long way to go for animal rights. There’s also an update on the Quebec zoo facing criminal animal cruelty charges, and how it lost a fight in court to keep the abused animals. For our main topic, Camille sits down with Gabriel Wildgen to discuss the fascinating history of campaigns to ban shark fin in Canada. Gabriel is a Harvard law student working with Animal Justice this summer, and previously spent many years campaigning against shark finning with HSI / Canada. From the Toronto City Council shark fin ban and its defeat in court, to a 2013 anti-shark fin bill in Parliament that lost by only six votes, it took many years and a lot...

The Battle to Pass Canada’s New Shark Import Ban

Another Defeat in Court for Lucy the Elephant

June 07, 2019 In this episode, Peter & Camille discuss a major new case from the Alberta Court of Appeal that rejected an attempt to help Lucy, a lonely elephant confined in the Edmonton Zoo. The hosts break down and critique the majority decision, praise the strong dissent, and explain what it means for animal law in Canada. But there’s more! The hosts discuss a mass neglect sentencing case from Alberta, a dog abuse case from B.C., why a Quebec zoo is being shut down by worker safety authorities, and why there won’t be any animal cruelty charges after a covert video was shot at a pig farm in B.C. This episode’s hero is NDP MP Nathan Cullen, who gave up a chance to debate his own bill on single-use plastics so that Bill S-203, banning whale and dolphin captivity, will be certain to pass. The zero is the Cherry Brook Zoo in New Brunswick, which is subtly threatening to “euthanize” countless animals in the wake of an attendance drop due to animal cruelty allegations. As always, u...
