Event description

Description

We’re delighted to be co-hosting Dr. Lisa Kramer along with the Animal Defence and Anti-Vivisection Society of BC, who focus on issues of animal testing and experimentation. Dr. Kramer is Professor of Finance and Research Fellow, Behavioural Economics in Action at Rotman (BEAR), at the University of Toronto. A long-time supporter of animals, Dr. Kramer’s recent work focuses on the use of animals in drug testing. In an essay published in 2018, Dr. Kramer shows animal modeling to be ineffective, misleading to scientists, unable to prevent the development of dangerous drugs, and prone to prevent the development of useful drugs. Her work is a call to those in the pharmaceutical industry to update their practices along with governments to create policies that reflect the best science available to us.


Animals and Ethics in the 21st Century presents a unique learning opportunity for anyone interested in animal rights and welfare, whether you are new to these issues and full of questions, or an experienced activist or advocate, all are welcome and encouraged to attend! Each speaker will be presenting from their own unique perspective in an effort to create better and more meaningful dialog around the many issues facing non-human animals.


Note: Doors open at 6:00pm. Lecture begins at 6:30pm, with Q&A session afterwards. 8:00pm end time.
