Farm Animal Rights Weigh Heavily on Minds of Canadian Residents

About two-thirds of Canadians say a politician's stance on farm-animal welfare could affect how they vote, according to a new poll.

The Harris-Decima poll, commissioned by the Vancouver Humane Society, found that 65 per cent of Canadians and 68 per cent of British Columbians said a politician's position on the welfare of farm animals could affect their vote.

The poll also found that 80 per cent of B.C. residents would be willing to pay more for farm-animal products that were certified as meeting humane standards by a third-party organization -- eight per cent higher than the national average.
