Quebec Named "Best Province To Be An Animal Abuser" In New Study

Quebec, Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, and Alberta are the best provinces and territories in Canada to be an animal abuser, according to a new report released today by the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF). Based on a detailed comparative analysis of the animal protection laws of each jurisdiction, researching thirteen distinct categories of provisions throughout hundreds of pages of statutes, the report recognizes the provinces and territories where laws protecting animals have real teeth, and calls out those like Quebec and Nunavut—the worst in Canada this year for animal protection laws—where animal abusers get off easy. ALDF’s fourth annual report, the only one of its kind in the nation, ranks every province and territory on the relative strength and general comprehensiveness of its animal protection laws. For the third year in a row, Ontario held the top spot in the rankings due to its wide array of animal protection laws; Saskatchewan showed the most significant improvement overall, moving from seventh last year to fifth best in the country this year.
