from documentaries like the game changers on netflix, to the surprisingly sudden absolutely ubiquitous presence of beyond meat at eateries and markets small and large – there is a change happening: in canada, meat consumption is going down.
vegetarians and vegans now account for nearly 10 per cent of Canada’s population – and we think that’s hot.
not to be a downer, there were 819 million animals are killed for food in canada in 2019. for perspective, we have only 15 million animals as companions.
there is work to be done. if you eat meat, show a flex… flexitarian that is. already vegetarian? how about eating vegan a few more times a month? already vegan? how about encouraging those around you without judgement? make and serve delicious vegan food, slap them burgers on your neighbour’s grill, proselytize on the unholy power felt following seitan.
