From our comrade, Joseph Buddenberg:
This new policy includes a permanent ban on breeding mink and live mink on farms by April 2023. This was made to allow the nine mink farms in operation to prepare for closure. The ministry assured that until then, “biosecurity measures are in place to protect workers and families on the farms.”
All operations must stop completely by 2025, including the selling off of all furs
There are nine mink farms in B.C. with a total of 318,000 mink. Hundreds of thousands of animals will be spared the torture of life on a fur farm every year.
The fur industry is dying.
