MelissaLopezMZ Contact. HeatherCTV Contact. TORONTO — Animal activists are demanding that international puppy mills be banned from importing dogs into Canada, after dozens of puppies were found dead in the cargo area of an international flight that landed at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport Friday. The woman who recorded the footage, Abby Lorenzen, said she was there to pick up a cat when she heard dogs “screaming.
The flight landed 12 hours later with 38 dogs dead on arrival and dozens of others sick and dehydrated. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency, which oversees the import of animals, confirmed in a statement on Friday that the Ukraine International Airlines flight landed in Toronto on June 13 with dogs in the cargo load. According to activists, dogs shipped onboard these flights usually come from puppy mills and are crammed onboard with limited space, and no water or food for hours.

Training for Change is a training and capacity building organization for activists and organizers. We believe strong training and group facilitation is vital to movement building for social justice and radical change. We train thousands of people each year in North America, and also internationally, across issues and sectors — from campaign strategy retreats for anti-gentrification community groups, facilitation training for union leaders, to de-escalation skills for immigrant rights groups resisting deportation.
Our participant-centered practice follows emerging group dynamics in a workshop, adapts to local cultures and theories of change, and is oriented toward action — we call it Direct Education. Each tool has been tested in the training room to be sure it is cross-cultural and based on our direct education approach.

On Monday, the sound cut out for the duration of the half-hour meeting, and activists resorted to largely shouting into the void.
