On this week's episode of Progressive Voices, Wendy Bones, member of the Grassroots Ontario Animal Liberation Network (GOAL) and cofounder of the Kitchener Ontario Animal Liberation Alliance (KOALA) speaks to the upcoming demonstration at African Lion Safari.
Wendy explains why groups are converging on African Lion Safari to protest the caging, abuse and exploitation of animals at this private, for-profit institution. Wendy also touches upon a need for change in the regulation and legislation around animals in Ontario.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
