A LOCAL ON-LINE COMMUNITY RESOURCE FOR ALL THINGS VEGAN AND ANIMAL RIGHTS IN VANCOUVER

Karmavore started as Metro Vancouver's first 100% Vegan Cafe + Dessert Lounge with the largest selection of egg-free, lactose-free, cholesterol-free treats and comfort food. Unfortunately due to a massive block fire, that resulted in the destruction of two buildings and the closure of our entire block for months, the physical space of Karmavore could not financially recover.

The beliefs of Karmavore lives on here and will continue to connect with the community about Healthy, Sustainable, and Compassionate food choices.

CAPTIVITY @
THE VANCOUVER AQUARIUM

The Mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson, has stated that he believes that the Vancouver Aquarium should phase out the captivity of whales and dolphins. In addition, two Parks Board Commissioners, Constance Barnes and Sarah Blyth, have also said that captivity of cetaceans is cruel and must be phased out.

Please send a “Thank You” to them for taking this progressive step forward. Email Mayor Robertson (Gregor.Robertson@vancouver.ca) Constance Barnes (constance.barnes@vancouver.ca) and Sarah Blyth (sarah.blyth@vancouver.ca)”.

I have attached our new “10 Myths and Facts About the Vancouver Aquarium”.

Lifeforce has been fighting to phase out the captivity of whales and dolphins since the 80s. The latest events in Vancouver are encouraging. More and more people from all walks of life, including scientists, are speaking out. We hope that this is finally the beginning of the end to the Vancouver Aquarium aquatic circus, and treating these sentient creatures as research tools!

HELP STOP CANADA'S SEAL SLAUGHTER

Urge Canadian officials to put a stop to the annual seal slaughter immediately!

Canada’s annual seal slaughter has begun, and seals desperately need your help. Every year at this time thousands of baby seals are shot or bludgeoned and then skinned—sometimes while they are still alive. Seals can be legally killed as soon as they shed their white fur at just a few weeks of age, and most of those killed are under 3 months.

The Canadian seal fur trade may be a fading industry, but the need for action NOW is as strong as ever! Rather than moving forward with a buyout, Canada is currently trying to overturn the EU ban on seal fur.

Please urge Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Gail Shea, Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird, and Minister of International Trade Ed Fast to help put an immediate end to the commercial seal slaughter by supporting a government buyout.

Please share this urgent alert with your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter and ask them to join you in speaking up for seals today.
