Quack! Our Canada Day Adventure
Category : Uncategorized
We recently got a duck mascot costume (thanks to NARN for the info on that) so we decided to take him out for the afternoon on Canada Day.
He hasn’t been named yet. If you have any ideas for a name, email your ideas to Becci. We’ll select the top choices and let everyone vote!
In 2 hours we gave out all of our 500 leaflets. Being out with a costume of any animal is such fun, since people just love to take pictures and have their pictures taken with the mascot. Little kids loved the duck!
His entourage passed out leaflets and talked about the issues of force-feeding and foie gras production.
It’s nice to do a positive about foie gras. So often they turn into negative sorts of events. The people who make and sell foie gras (there are many who sell it here in Vancouver) try to make themselves out to be the victims, but the real victims are the ducks who are force-fed for no reason other than gluttony.
