Bill 156: The Ag Gag Law

A good piece on J-Source explaining how Ontario's "Security from Trespass and Protecting Food Safety Act" is a threat to good journalism.

On June 10, the Canadian Association of Journalists released a statement condemning Bill 156 and highlighting a number of concerning consequences. According to the statement, the new law does not allow protections for whistleblowers, would criminalize undercover investigators entering animal protection zones or interacting with drivers “under false pretences” and expose journalists to lawsuits for doing their jobs.
