Moira Colley 202-483-7382

Toronto – Actor Maggie Q will travel to Toronto on Tuesday to support Ontario activist Anita Krajnc, who is currently facing up to six months in jail and a $5,000 fine for giving water to dehydrated slaughter-bound pigs on a sweltering day in June 2015. The Designated Survivor star and Krajnc will meet for breakfast before delivering a statement to the media on the trial. Maggie and Anita will be available for interviews.

Where:    Dark Horse Espresso Bar, 215 Spadina Ave., Toronto

When:    Tuesday, November 1, 7:30 a.m.

“When I first heard Anita’s story, I thought it must be a joke,” says Maggie Q, who previously starred in an ad for PETA urging fans to oppose cruelty to animals as well as climate change by adopting a plant-based diet. “There’s no way that someone could actually get arrested—let alone be facing jail time—simply for showing a little compassion to a suffering animal in the final agonizing moments of an unjust life.”
