PETA adorns Ottawa Ribfest with half-clad woman on BBQ for “Meat is Murder” protest

Brian LilleyArchive

It’s Ribfest in Ottawa, a key event on the social calendar for downtown workers but not everyone’s happy. Along with the meat-eaters, the event always draws PETA out for a stunt that usually includes a partially clad woman on display to protest the event. 

Watch as I interview PETA spokesperson, Emily Lavender, and debate the “Meat is Murder” premise.

Agree or disagree with their position, the one point in their favour is their willingness to talk and have their views challenged which isn’t always the case in political Ottawa.

Pita has a point as to how we raise animals, but I see what they are doing as overkill.

In today’s climate of profits over humane treatment of animals, Pita may have to to make their point.

Unfortunately, this young lady is correct about some of the factory farms here in BC. There are four chickens to a cage and the dead ones are pulled each morning. Barns are thoroughly cleansed between lots, but sawdust ground cover quickly turns to manure and three weeks later the place is rank. My son worked at a slaughter house for chickens. They would grab the chickens and leg cuff them upside down while the frightened birds were squirting poo and pee everywhere. Sometimes the birds had a leg ripped off in the process or were maimed in other ways. Finally they would be dragged head first through electrically charged water to kill them. On the other hand, I watched a video on how to humanely kill a chicken. The farmer, who the bird knew and trusted, picked the bird up gently and placed it in a metal cone, head down. He explained the blood going to the chicken’s head put them into a coma. He then took a very sharp knife and turned the chicken’s head to the side and slit the throat so quick the bird died instantly with no pain. The difference is adrenalin charged meat or meat from a calm bird which is far more healthy for the human recipient. Even Temple Grandin (USA) designed very humane slaughter houses for cattle who were being terrorized and damaged during the process of reaching the kill station. PETA has a point when it comes to raising and killing animals humanely.

MFA undercover investigators have indeed found some factory farms in Canada that have been charged with appalling animal abuse violations. Many farms do practice ethical treatment for their livestock, but there will always be some bad apples who cut corners at the expense of the welfare of their animals. I think she did a pretty good job of fielding questions to the best of her knowledge. People always want to polarize any given issue and I have found that nine times out of ten the true answer lies somewhere in the middle. I say good for Brian Lilley and good for the PETA girl.

This young lady has obviously never been to a processing facility or ‘slaughter house’ in her life. Living in Canada near dozens of ranches and having worked in a plant on kill/rendering floors and seeing the whole process from pen to plate, I can assure you that almost all are not ‘mutilated without painkillers’ nor ‘suffering every day of their lives’ Its depressing to see another brainwashed lefty following the ’don’t confuse me with the facts, my minds made up’ mantra and just embarrassing herself through the duration of the interview.

P.S. Why aren’t the looney woman’s rights activists up in arms outraged at how PETA is portraying a woman as a piece of meat?
commented 2016-06-23 23:18:48 -0400
What does PETA say about other animals eating animals? Like it’s ok for them but not us? Why is that? Maybe she should have a round table with tigers and tell them to stop it!!! They can get their nutrition from tofu just fine!

@ Bravo Zulu,
also read somewhere that cargill in ontario practises halal killings, that a major processor imho.
Haven’t confirmed for myself though.
commented 2016-06-23 21:45:28 -0400
@ Bravo Zulu,
I don’t think halal killings are outlawed in Canada even though they ought to be.
Not arguing but something in the back of my mind tells me i read something somewhere that this is done here. Will dig further on this.

I am not so sure that i can believe that, I’ll check the halal section next time i see that shit to see where it come from.
Not sure I understand what you mean – but yes the large slaughter houses use the stun or air gun.

Halal kill places use a dull knife

Unless the kill plants are combined – in which case the gun goes away and the knife comes out. There are a few combined places. Usually run by islamics because not many real men believe in torture. For the most part only the evil of islam are willing to torture

I was talking strictly western style plants only.

This is why we eat pretty much strictly our own animals – we kill on farm.

When I am on the road I am pretty much a vegetarian in the middle east.

I think she has one more rib than a man. Good news for the rib fest.

Funny how that is called, “Exploitation of women” when a non-left wing group does that stunt. Eve if the women want to do it and are handsomely paid, its still always exploitation of women somehow. unless its for a left-wing cause.

Go figure.

Could please have the pro life group set up a similar display next to them showing that abortion is murder? I wonder how long it would be allowed to stand.

If we were to follow PETA’s rhetoric, there would be no need to have these animals on the earth to begin with. Apparently NO members of PETA believe in the Bible, or do they have some way of twisting the messages in the Good book. Messages that seem quite clear. Why does PETA not have members en mass at green energy wind farms where the bird slaughter runs rampant. Or at the solar farms where birds can be fried during an innocent fly by. Where are they when Abdul decides to mount the donkey " doggie style " in order to stave off a sexual emergency.

It may well be time that a new organization is formed. People for the Ethical Treatment of Plants. Do we know how the carrot feels when it is so unceremoniously ripped from the earth. And the poor apple being torn from the tree. What about the wheat field cringing in fear as the sharp knives of the combines approach.Some scientists have argued vehemently that plants have actual feelings and can communicate. If so what will the Vegans eat? I wish Brian would have asked her that question.

Yes we should protect all life and ensure the best treatment of all life. Too often PETA come across as a grandstanding and hypocritical entity. If they could respond to some of my points in a reasonable fashion,maybe they could gain credibility, rather than the usual cherry picking. They come across too often just like pm selfie.

Once again demonstrating that pillar of lefty-dom: the unwillingness to exercise discernment. Moral- equivalence on all fronts.

I’m glad they used a girl that’s pretty hot. Imagine if they replaced her with a fat swamp donkey of a woman? I mean a real Jabba the Hutt in a bikini. It may have been more accurate because a lot of these radical types looks like pot belly pigs.

Extreme points of view, she seemed very sincere, I find myself feeling sorry for her.

We are built to eat meat – that being said, I take no issue with advocating on humane treatment of the beasties up until the kill. And kill humanely – which WE do.

I will also echo the sentiments of others here … If PETA wants to really get into it, go after the Muslims and their CRUEL treatment and slaughter of animals for food. Set up one of these displays with bikini clad women in front of a muzzy slaughterhouse. It might be dangerous but I would bet there would be no shortage of strapping Canadian lads willing to provide protection ;)

I dont care what they do with my groceries, i’m going to eat them anyway.

Farmers do not abuse the animals they raise – it is a myth that the are cruel – the animals grow better and faster and healthier if treated humanely from start to finish.

Are there rare cases of the opposite?

Of course. We are all human.

Mistreat an animal on our family farm you will take a beating – no not a swat – a beating.

That way you can appreciate what you jut did to an animal.



Western slaughter houses are legislated to “stun” with a type of “gun”

I call them bolt guns – you draw line from one ear to the opposite side eye – and do the same in reverse.

Where the X is formed is the prime kill spot.

Do it often enough you can do it mentally and quickly and accurately.

Place the gun against the head on that spot – some hold it just ever so slightly off the head.

Pull the trigger – a long and large diameter bolt enters the head instantaneously and simultaneously injects high pressure air into the brain.

Instant death.

Hoist it up and only then is the throat cut to allow the blood to drain.

They never see it coming.


Let’s talk islamic slaughter.

You know the religion of peace guys.

Hog tie the animal.

Maybe beat it into submission with a club.

Force the head up and back.

Saw at the neck with a knife – a dull one at that – because they do not sharpen them after each kill.

Watch the animal struggle.

Listen to it bawl as it suffers in absolute agony.

Watch the killers laugh as the animals struggles.

If I could post pics on here I could show you what it is like.

I have many pics of them doing this – taken in the village of Bagrami

The islamics are happily as cruel as can be.

Western slaughter houses do kill and I like my steak.

It is completed as humanely as possible.

Is it ugly?


Will I stop eating meat?


Will I condone the islamic method of killing?


If you want to see the difference go to You Tube and see for yourself.

Most of you will not do this.

Too bad – it will demonstrate yet another islamic trait that is common throughout the world.

Extreme cruelty to animals.

Media will never tell you the above.

It is all factual.
