Valentine’s Day foie gras protest at Cru
Category : Uncategorized
Almost a year ago, the owner of Cru, Mark Taylor, had sent me an email saying that foie gras was permanently off their menu. However, they have continued to serve foie gras occasionally and decided to put it on their special Valentine’s Day menu.
This is yet another example of the lack of integrity shown by these “business” owners. (I previously wrote about it in this post.) What are their words worth?
We gathered a dozen people or so for this protest, which was the Vancouver portion of an international day of protest against foie gras organized by Farm Sanctuary, asking people to share some of the love with animals on this Valentine’s Day.
We had a really good response from the people walking by, and collected a fair number of signatures for the petition to ban foie gras in Vancouver. People across the street at the bus stop kept asking what was going on and we had to send some people over to their side of the road to give out information and collect signatures.
After the protest a bunch of us went to Hon’s on Robson for some delicious cheap Chinese food. I love Hon’s.
