PETA Pounces on Parliament

Published by PETA.

After Canada’s House of Commons passed a budget bill that strikes down several environmental protection laws, PETA’s blue-painted supporters hit Ottawa’s Parliament Hill to rock the government’s world—almost literally—and to urge eco-conscious Canadians not to despair because they can still help save the planet by eating plant-based foods.

According to the United Nations, the meat industry is in large part responsible for some of the most serious environmental problems that we face today, including climate change. So even if you aren’t daring enough to strip down to bodypaint (although if you are, let PETA know), don’t feel blue—you can still help protect the Earth by choosing healthy, humane vegan meals.
