Bill 156 – Nothing Strengthens Authority As Much As Silence

Standard

Written by:  Heather Clemenceau

Artwork in support of Animals in the Anthropocene, by We Animals Media, Jo-Anne McArthur, and Keith Wilson.

There’s no doubt that, in the defence of animal agriculture, Canadian legislators and politicians are becoming more and more oppressive. They’d have us live in a place where we all wear blindfolds. Bill 156 has outlawed picketing, protests, and any watering of animals that interacts with animal transport. It has empowered farmers to arrest anyone on their premises, using a degree of force that is vague and undefined. To that end, Bill 156 is designed, in part, to make sure nobody will be acquitted under the “thirsty pig defence” in future.

Whistleblowers make disclosures that are in the public interest. They should be applauded, not punished.  Thank you to everyone who has put their life on the line in the defence of animals.  

Please know what MPPs voted for this legislation. Their emails and party affiliation are included.  Most “aye” votes were registered by the PC Party, while most “nayes” were recorded by the NDP.

“Having unannounced inspections and external monitoring on large commercial farms would seem to be the right way forward to increase safety and public confidence – and that is the legislation that should be pushed forward.”  ~ Jan Hajek is an infectious diseases doctor, who has worked in Ontario for SARS, in Newfoundland in 2009 for H1N1, in Sierra Leone for Ebola, and is now working on the COVID-19 ward at Vancouver General Hospital.
