Special Toronto Pig Save update !

Oscar-winner Joaquin Phoenix joined the family and friends of fallen activist Regan Russell at a Toronto Pig Save vigil yesterday, November 20th.

Joaquin, who was wearing an LA Animal Save hoodie, bore witness and appeared to be moved to see the pigs crammed in the trucks and their sad eyes. He offered comfort to Regan’s husband Mark Powell.

Joaquin said, "I’m here to honour Regan Russell and all the animal activists who dedicate their lives to ending this injustice."

Joshua Powell, Regan’s stepson said, “We were stricken by his humble, courteous nature and really appreciated the moments we had to talk with him and share stories about Regan.”

Activist Jenny McQueen said, "We are extremely honored to have Joaquin Phoenix join us at a vigil." Regan was an activist who was violently killed while trying to expose what Bill 156 will hide.
