It’s time to end factory farming in Canada!
Factory farms are cruel to animals, disastrous for the planet, and horrible for human health. They’re also the perfect breeding ground for infectious diseases. Factory farms pose a substantial risk of causing another pandemic, potentially more contagious and deadly than COVID-19.
The recent floods in British Columbia have further exposed the environmental and health dangers of industrialized factory farming. Images of cows being pulled from rising water, and chicken farms holding tens of thousands of chickens overcome with flood waters filled the media for days. And now there are growing concerns over the impacts farmed animal waste will have on the water and groundwater system.
The Canadian government continues to spend billions in taxpayer dollars subsidizing large-scale factory farming — one of the most destructive and abusive industries on the planet.
In 2021, the Canadian government has already pledged over $1.7 billion dollars to factory farms. This funding helps this cruel and destructive industry thrive. Canadians are concerned about animal cruelty, the impact on climate change, and the risk of infections diseases on factory farms.
