Regina, SK – Wearing football-themed bikinis and holding signs that read, “Bench Cruelty: Go Vegan!” two PETA beauties will hand out delicious meat-free “wings” in downtown Regina on Thursday. Their goal? To persuade Grey Cup viewers to give healthy and delicious vegan food a try during the big game this year—it might just help them to be around for many more Grey Cup matches to come.

When:           Thursday, November 21, 12 noon

Where:          Intersection of Scarth Street and 11th Avenue, Regina

“With all the delicious vegan options available, everyone should throw a flag on meat—and that includes football fans,” says PETA beauty Emily Lavender. “No matter which team you place your money on to win the Grey Cup, going vegan is always a safe bet.”

In addition to avoiding animal suffering, vegans are less prone to heart disease, strokes, and cancer than meat-eaters are, according to the Dietitians of Canada. And a recent United Nations report concluded that a global shift toward a vegan diet is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change.

PETA is no stranger to the football world: The group has collaborated with the Lingerie Football League, organized a star-studded vegan wing taste test, and recruited numerous players to star in ad campaigns promoting kindness to animals.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
