Demand policies that promote a sustainable food transition
Several practices that seriously compromise the welfare of farmed animals, and that have been banned elsewhere in the world precisely for this reason, are still widespread in Quebec. These include the confinement of animals in very small spaces, as well as physical mutilation without pain control.
Reducing our consumption of meat and animal products is the best way to reduce animal suffering at the source. This is why the Montreal SPCA is a member of the Coalition for a Sustainable Food Transition, a group of organizations that calls on governments to adopt and implement policies aimed at a food transition toward future production that includes more plant-based foods.
Increasing the plant-based food supply in public institutions is also an effective and positive way to fight climate change and improve public health.
Sign this letter to your local MNA, the Minister of the Environment and the Fight against Climate Change and the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in Quebec to demand modern, progressive public food supply policies based on scientific recommendations.
