Stop Pigs Being Scalded Alive!
Pigs, who are well-known for being as intelligent as three-year old children, may soon be facing slaughterhouse conditions that will increase their odds of being boiled alive in scalding-hot water.

We must speak up now to stop this!
Anchors of CBS This Morning Celebrate Pig Slaughter
CBS This Morning is a major morning news program that has recently been attracting new viewers with the charm of its anchors. That charm misfired when anchors Nora O'Donnell and Gail King went off-script to giggle about bacon. Many animal-loving viewers have not been able to watch the show since.

The legislation takes the form of amendments within the national Fisheries Act, which is currently being updated in order to reflect the evolving moral values of Canadians and to recoup from losses endured during the previous Conservative government.
