Featured today is our talk with Bowinn Ma, a concerned citizen inspired to take action to stop Bill C-51.
Bowinn is helping to organize a rally coming up on Saturday April 18th in Vancouver. To learn more about omnibus Bill C-51 and to sign the petition visit #StopC51.

We also check-in with Jordan Reichert (The Critical Cat), one of the founders of the newly-formed Vancouver Island Vegan Association РVIVA.
 

VIVA is focused on building a welcoming, inclusive, safe, and accepting community of people interested in veganism. No matter what your ethnicity, gender, sex, sexual orientation, colour, economic status, or religious beliefs you are welcome to join us as we promote a non-speciest approach to living a compassionate lifestyle. If we want to build with these values, then we must practice them in how we communicate and behave with those we work, eat, play, and live with.

We also share some clips from the protest at Greater Vancouver Zoo which saw about 80 people travel out to Aldergrove on April 5, 2015.

To join in on anti-zoo actions in the region follow Liberate GV Zoo Animals.

 

 
We hope to see you at the Queer Animal Talent Show on Saturday, April 18th in Vancouver!
