Ryding-Regency meat packers, a Toronto slaughterhouse that attained notoriety a few years back due to video leaks evidencing hideous acts of animal cruelty, has recently had their license suspended following a mandated recall of their beef and veal products by the CFIA for suspected E. coli contamination.

This news was well-received by animal rights activists who had been protesting against the company’s practices for years. Activists are demanding with renewed emphasis that Ryding Regency be permanently shut down, with a petition that has amassed over 200,000 signatures.
