  • CFHS Statement on CBC Marketplace Expose

    On Friday night Canadians caught another glimpse of the reality of life behind the doors on the modern day industrial farm this time for turkeys in Canada. The CFHS was deeply shocked and disturbed to view the graphic images that undercover investigators were able to capture. An investigated is currently being conducted by the OSPCA.

    The CFHS advocates for only those farming practices that provide good welfare for the animals raised. The CFHS demands industry meet the 5 Freedoms by employing management practices and housing systems that meet both the physiological and psychological needs of the animals. The CFHS calls upon government to require third party on farm assessment of animal welfare practices regardless of species.

    Every Canadian who is thinking about their food must decide what is ethically and morally acceptable to them. The CFHS believes that food animals deserve our respect on the farm, in transport and in slaughter.
