Leafleting at Diwali Downtown

Last week was Diwali, the Indian festival of lights. There were several events around Vancouver, culminating in a big celebration at the Roundhouse Centre in Yaletown on Sunday.

The battle will rage

We are fighting a war. One that will only get fiercer and uglier before anyone wins. According to a Vancouver Sun article, a recent survey by the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association showed that vegan foods are one of the top 10 food trends. But, at the same time, small, traditional butchers are also one

Here is a batch of links from the past week or so, for your reading pleasure. Sorry to get to it so late. The biggest story was probably the HSUS veal slaughterhouse investigation, but I’ve only included one link to a story about it below. I’ll try to do a recap post about that story
