Dairy is Scary 

Jane Goodall, world renowned primatologist, has joined forces with Sen. Murray Sinclair to introduce a bill that would ban zoos from acquiring elephants and great apes. Sadly, this legislation entitled the “Jane Goodall Act” would not affect Lucy, the ban would only be for acquiring new great apes and elephants. Current stocks of animals would be allowed to remain in zoos, parks and other places.

However, Jane Goodall has voiced her opposition to Lucy’s long years of captivity at the Edmonton Valley Zoo and is begging Edmonton to move her.

Edmonton International Airport continues to allow the shipment of live horse to Japan for slaughter despite the industry violating Canadian Food Inspection Associations laws and regulations. The horses are in transit for 36 (or more) hours without food, water or rest. We feel this is completely unacceptable and support the Canadian  Horse  Defense  Coalition's court action against the federal government.

Our electronic "Dairy is Scary" ads were featured at the U of A and Bay LRT stations as well as on a number of outdoor billboards in October and November. The ads are linked to a 5 min. YouTube video exposing the horrors of the dairy industry.
