Schulich Law Professor’s Research Turned Into Comic Form
In February 2021, Professor Jodi Lazare was contacted by Petroglyph Comics, a social justice comic studio, that wanted to turn her research on Canadian ag-gag legislation into a comic, accessible to all. The resulting comic is based on two articles by Lazare, the first published in the Alberta Law Journal and the second forthcoming in the Osgoode Hall Law Journal. Both articles combine her interests in animal law and constitutional law to suggest that recently adopted legislation limiting access to and information about industrially farmed animals in Canada constitutes an unjustified limit to the constitutional right to freedom of expression and the public right to information about the violence of industrial animal farming. Images were inspired by the work of We Animals Media.
