Go Voiceless for 24 Hours & Help Stop Canada's
Ag Gag Laws!
Animals in Canada urgently need your help. Dangerous new “ag gag” laws are rapidly spreading across the country, threatening millions of animals who are suffering right now behind closed doors.
These agricultural gag laws are meant to protect meat industry profits by making it illegal to expose hidden animal cruelty in farms, slaughterhouses, and transport trucks.
These terrifying new laws silence whistleblowers and keep the public from learning the truth. But we won't let the meat industry get away with it.
Since 2019, ag gag laws have been passed in Ontario and Alberta, and the meat industry is also lobbying for ag gag in Manitoba, Quebec, British Columbia, and nationwide.
Ag gag laws cover up cruelty on farms, but often also have dire consequences for animals in puppy mills, fur farms, and labs. Canada already has some of the worst animal protection laws in the western world—there are NO laws regulating animal welfare on farms, and no government inspections. Caring Canadians have no ability to see behind the closed doors of places like farms and labs, so undercover exposés are often the only way that rampant animal cruelty comes to light.
But this fight isn’t over. Ag gag laws violate Charter-protected rights to freedom of expression, and Animal Justice is preparing to go to court to challenge and defeat these dangerous laws. Read on to discover how by going voiceless for 24 hours for animals, YOU can help stop ag gag laws in Canada!
