Kitchener, Ontario – Ahead of Thanksgiving (October 9), tomorrow PETA supporters will gather outside a local Farm Boy and give away Field Roast and Tofurky roasts to encourage people to enjoy a vegan holiday and spare turkeys, nearly 3 million of whom are killed and sold in Canada each year for Thanksgiving alone.
When: Thursday, October 5, 4:30 p.m.
Where: 385 Fairway Road S., Kitchener

“Turkeys feel pain and fear, experience joy, value their lives, and don’t deserve to be carved up and stuffed any more than we do,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is urging everyone to show a little mercy and tuck into savory, satisfying vegan roasts that give everyone something to be thankful for.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—offers a “ThanksVegan” recipe guide.
