In an article posted by Animal Justice, they tell us that “Canada’s new agriculture minister has announced his chief of staff:
Mary Jean McFall, whose family owns one of Canada’s largest egg producers—Burnbrae Farms—and who used to serve as a board member of Egg Farmers of Ontario.”
…….”Burnbrae has been under fire from animal protection groups in recent years. In 2012, Burnbrae was the subject of a consumer protection complaint filed by Animal Justice for its use of the term “Nestlaid” to describe eggs that were not laid in nests. The complaint alleged that the premium-priced eggs were from hens living in crowded, cramped wire cages that did not meaningfully differ from the industry norm, and that the term was misleading for consumers.”
This causes one to wonder how these types of appointments will bode for our horses.
