Legal Activism: Navigating Ontario's Ag-Gag Laws

Event Description:  In 2020, Ontario introduced agricultural gag (“ag-gag”) legislation which significantly hampers activists’ ability to protest outside farms and slaughterhouses. This legislation also criminalizes whistle-blowers and/or undercover investigations.

In this webinar, AEL Advocacy provided an overview of Ontario's new ag-gag laws and advised activists on how to effectively and lawfully advocate in light of this new legal regime.

Presented by:   Kira Berkeley, Co-Director and Counsel (AEL Advocacy)
