On June 19th 2020, Regan Russell was killed. An activist since the 1970s, she was at Fearman’s Pork slaughterhouse with Toronto Pig Save for a regular vigil. During these vigils the activists have an agreement with the slaughterhouse where the trucks stop outside for 2 minutes, so the activists can approach and give the pigs water and show them some comfort.
However, on that day, one of the truck drivers ran Regan over and killed her.
In today's episode, I discuss how the new Bill 156, which was passed just a few days before, could have potentially pushed the truck driver to act in a way that ultimately ended a human life.
Bill 156 exists to prevent activists from filming animal suffering on farms and during transport, making it illegal to do so.
