Douglas Leith is the candidate for Bruce
Douglas is a qualified secondary teacher and has been an animal rights activist for over a quarter of a century since seeing the upsetting images of primate brain experiments at age 18. This issue has been his main focus since then but he has also attended demonstrations, volunteered, written, stood in freezing lakes at dawn to help stop animal abuse in its myriad forms.
He has spoken at World Vegan Day, the Animal Activists Forum, Institute for Critical Animal Studies, World Event to End Animal Cruelty and elsewhere on the subject of animal experimentation.
A long term vegan, he is thoroughly aware of the suffering which animals endure and of its needlessness and seeks to end it.
