Farmers and livestock transporters across Ontario are facing increasing harassment from activists. These individuals and organizations are causing significant disruptions to one of Ontario’s largest economic driver – the agri-food sector. Peaceful protests have escalated to trespassing, break-ins, theft of farm property and physical harassment. The legal system is offering little protection. Police are reluctant to lay charges. And the Crown is withdrawing charges before trial. Ontario’s agriculture industry is calling on MPPs to work with agricultural leaders for stronger enforcement to ensure the safety of Ontario’s farm families and their employees.
Fill in the information below to send a letter to your local MPP to let them know you are concerned about the lack of enforcement of existing legislation for animal activism. You will be able to preview the letter before it is sent electronically.
Thank you for sharing your concern about the enforcement of escalating on-farm trespassing and harassment by animal activists.
