Le 8 novembre, jour-même de l’élection présidentielle américaine controversée, nos voisins du Massachusetts ont voté en faveur d’une législation historique interdisant le confinement intensif des animaux de ferme. Cette initiative interdira les méthodes d’élevage qui limitent sévèrement la liberté de mouvement des animaux, telles que les logettes à veaux, les cages de gestation pour les porcs et les cages en batterie pour les poules pondeuses – méthodes qui demeurent malheureusement courantes ici au Québec. Cette mesure interdira aussi la vente de viande et d’œufs produits en utilisant ces méthodes, même si les animaux sont élevés en dehors de l’état.

On November 8th, the very same day as the controversial American presidential election, our neighbours in Massachusetts voted in favour of landmark legislation prohibiting the intensive confinement of farmed animals. The initiative will prohibit farming methods that keep animals severely constrained in their freedom of movement, including the use of veal crates for calves, gestation crates for pigs and battery cages for egg-laying hens – all of which are sadly still commonly used here in Quebec. It will also ban the sale of meat and eggs produced using those methods, even from animals that were farmed outside the state.
