Victoria, B.C. – Santa’s “elves” are coming to town—and they’re bringing vegan turkey! On Sunday, PETA supporters dressed in North Pole couture will head to Cook Street Village to give away free Gardein Turk’y Cutlets to help people celebrate Christmas with vegan feasts that let there be peace on Earth for all.

When:    Sunday, December 10, 2 p.m.

Where:    Cook Street Village (near the intersection of Cook and Oxford streets), Victoria

“Leaving turkeys off the holiday table is a surefire way to stay on Santa’s ‘nice’ list,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is encouraging everyone to spread comfort and joy for animals this Christmas by opting for delicious vegan fare.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—offers a vegan holiday guide on its website.
