OFA wholeheartedly supports Bill 156, the Security from Trespass and Protecting Food Safety Act, 2019. OFA supports the government’s commitment to keep farm animals, farmers and farm workers and our food supply safe. Legislative provisions that can respond to the threats to animal safety, food safety and to the personal safety of farmers and their families are needed. OFA recommends that when regulations under the Act are drafted that protection be extended to farm animals at fairs and exhibitions, as well as other public events and businesses such as horse-drawn carriage rides. OFA also recommends the provincial government recognize the added stress, anxiety and mental health consequences from online bullying through social media.
