Woman killed outside Sofina Food plant in Burlington


Halton Police say a woman has been struck and killed by a truck in Burlington.

It happened outside the Sofina Foods facility at Harvester Rd. and Appleby Line around 10 a.m. on Friday.

The woman in her 60s was hit by a truck carrying pigs for slaughter.

Witnesses say she was protesting outside the facility.

The animal rights group Toronto Pig Save is regularly outside the plant.

On hot days, protesters will give water to pigs as they are taken in for processing.

In 2015, one of the group’s founders Anita Krajnc was arrested while giving the animals water.

She was found not guilty of criminal mischief.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed the incident or has dash cam footage to contact them.

  1. I did not know Regan personally but she was a kind, noble and compassionate soul. It’s made clear by the fact that she dedicated so many years of her life to helping our planet’s most vulnerable.
    The fact that some people choose to speak ill of her or her activism is a true indication of the messed up world we live in.
    The animals thank you, Regan, and you will be missed by many.

  2. I’m sorry that happened to the old woman honestly but she should have known better about jumping in front of a transport truck! It’s a 18 wheeler truck! That poor trucker to witness that & to
    endure that. It is not his fault
    he can’t stop on a dime.
