Walk for Farm Animals: the last 5 years

With Liberation BC’s 6th annual Walk for Farm Animals to benefit Farm Sanctuary coming up on September 29th,  I thought this would be a good time to talk about the last 5 years.  The Vancouver walk gets bigger and better every time and each walk is more exciting than the last.  What can I say, we
