Canada: We must do better for our animals (even those we want to eat)

Leave a comment

While the government does not regulate farm conditions – choosing instead to finance and endorse industry-created codes of practice – it does get involved in regulating transport and slaughter because of the food safety and interprovincial trade dimensions.

If the government is going to do something, we want them to do it competently.

But Canada’s transport regulations have been criticized as the worst in the Western world, lagging behind the transport welfare laws of the European Union, Australia, New Zealand and the United States.
