Farmers urged to take action on complacency regarding animal rights activist prosecution


The Ontario Federation of Agriculture and its members are calling on farmers and allies to contact their government representative over the increase in animal rights activists’ activities and the lack of prosecution of charges.

There has been a marked increase in activist activity on farms and roadsides in Ontario over the past few months. At the same time, news of a well-known activist having charges dismissed against them has caused anger and frustration both within the farming and legal community alike.

OFA is encouraging anyone who is concerned by the lack of follow through by Ontario’s district courts on this matter to contact their MPP, the premier, the solicitor general, and the minister of agriculture to voice their concern and call for more action by the legal system.
