These factory farms promised to treat animals compassionately. They lied. Demand that the Retail Council of Canada keep its promise to end cages for farmed animals!

The Retail Council of Canada (RCC) is an organization dedicated to representing the interests of retail businesses across the country, from groceries to pharmaceuticals to general merchandise. Several years ago, the RCC promised to prioritize farmed animals' welfare by phasing out cruel gestation cages for pigs and tiny battery cages for egg-laying hens. These changes were set to be implemented by 2022 and 2025 respectively — until the RCC abruptly changed course this year, reneging on all its previously-made commitments.

Gestation crates are metal cages just a few inches larger than the pregnant pigs locked up inside them, each held in a cramped individual cell for months until they give birth. Battery cages are on average smaller than a single piece of printer paper, and hens are squished into these crushingly small containers for their entire lives. Factory farms use these torture chambers in order to pack as many animals into a building as possible, turning them into meaningless objects devoid of life, just so farm executives can squeeze out as much profit as possible. But pigs and chickens experience pain, wants, and feelings — and right now, they're suffering. Sign the petition to demand the Retail Council of Canada show some integrity and remain true to its animal welfare promises!

Thank you,
