Culture of cruelty’
“This is not a matter of a few workers, this is a culture of cruelty that has been permitted for far too long at Elite Farms and across the poultry industry.”
Mercy for Animals is demanding the workers, the supervisors and both Elite Farms and Lilydale all face prosecution. The organization has filed complaints with the RCMP, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the BC SPCA.
Federal Court finds Canadian government failed to protect species at risk
March 27, 2014
The lawsuit is meant to shine a light on the need for implementing the federal Species at Risk Act in a more transparent and accountable manner as a step to getting boreal woodland caribou, and all species in Canada, the protection they require.
The Federal Court also noted that considering species protection in the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline hearings was not the same as legal protection under the Species At Risk Act and that the government’s statutory duties to prevent the destruction of “critical habitat” are not generally triggered until such habitat has been identified in a recovery strategy or action plan for the species.
Significantly, the Court also accepted that “as one of the Ministers’ own affiants has observed, a recovery strategy should be science-based, not consensus-based” in rejecting the government’s contention that stakeholder consultations justified the delays.
The Federal Court has long recognized in a series of decisions enforcing the Act that it is not acceptable for the federal government to continue to delay finalizing recovery strategies under the Species at Risk Act, and in doing so delay habitat protection for at‑risk species.
In trying to address a practical way to force the federal government to comply with its legal obligations under the Act, the Court has crafted some innovative solutions in this case and other similar cases. In this case, the environmental groups obtained an order declaring the delays unlawful and the government has a short time to comply. If it doesn’t, the parties can come back and make submissions about it.
The case is good news for species at risk. It means that it will be increasingly difficult for the federal government to continue to ignore its obligations for the 167 species it has failed to protect.
Imagine you are born into a world where humans steal your from your Mother, put you in a caged room and ship you off to be sold to the highest bidder for a small amount of money.
And why would humans do this to you? A piece of flesh, glass of lactation fluid or a piece of “cheese”.
You’re a baby with nobody to help you. You’re alone and you have no idea what this world is or what you need to do to escape.
This is your life and this is where it ends.
If you are a person who supports treating animals like this, you have no morals or ethics.
Please open your mind and your heart.
