We have a new Prime Minister, new Members of Parliament, and a new cabinet. What does it all mean for the animals?
It’s hard to make a clear distinction. On one hand, we have a PMO that already seems more open and transparent than it has for the past 10 years; on the other, we have a Prime Minister who’s a little too fond of his Canada Goose coyote fur-trimmed parka. We have gender equality in the cabinet for the first time, and cabinet members who wore seal skin to their swearing-in ceremonies.
To help us break down what some of this means now, and over the next four years, we connected with political powerhouse Camille Labchuk. A former Green Party candidate and now the freshly minted executive director for Animal Justice, Camille’s experience, education, and compassion gives her the unique perspective we need to help figure out what a red Canada means for the animals.
