After many discussion and hoping for years that someone would just get on with it and form a vegan society in Canada we just decided to get on with it and do it ourselves :-) in the hope it would get the ball rolling and people contributing to make it prosper. Come and volunteer we need a bunch of people to fill many roles like social media, blogger, journalist, researcher, public relations, local and regional speaker, etc...

Veganism Is Not A Religion

While you do have to adopt the philosophy in order to be a vegan, and while this carries as a consequence the adoption of plant-based eating, you don't need to follow a particular "diet-y" beyond that.

So, to paraphrase: "Mothers make the worst mothers, which is why we forcibly separate them early, otherwise they undergo natural emotional bonding, which nobody wants."

This video is amazing. It isn't topping the list the most duplicitous bits of propaganda, but it's right up there.

This is a very well conducted examination of whether or not the philosophy of veganism is either racist or classist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJoy8yBpOQM

This is very unfortunate. Please let the RCMP know that

"the RCMP said it will only buy from approved suppliers who use legal and humane methods for harvesting fur"

humane harvesting of fur does not exist. In 2014 the RCMP made the choice not to cause animals to be kill but was overturned by the then government

If the animal friendly tuque worked well back then in cold weather there is no reason they don't work equally as well now.

YourVeganFallacyIs.com is also "Twój Przesąd Na Temat Weganizmu To"!

Due to the long and hard work of our volunteers, we're both thrilled and proud to be launching the site in good ol' Polski. There's a lot of really great advocacy taking place in Polish speaking countries around the world, so we see this as a much needed and very timely addition to the Your Vegan Fallacy Is project. While many people worked hard to make this happen, and we want to express our deep and heartfelt thanks to ALL of them, Robert Zduński was particularly dedicated to making this site translation a reality -- thanks a ton, Robert!

This makes our fifth language on the site, following English, Deutsch/German, Español/Spanish, and Português/Portuguese, and there's room for LOTS more. If you're vegan and you'd like to see the site in your native language (or to help out with the ongoing work in the existing languages), OR if you're interested in helping with the editing, art, or resource gathering, then we'd love to chat with you about how you can volunteer your time to make that happen!

The Your Vegan Fallacy Is project is a community-driven effort dedicated to correcting misconceptions about veganism in approachable and unambiguous ways. If you're vegan and you'd like to see the site in your mothertongue (or to help out with the ongoing work in the existing languages), or if you'd like to volunteer your skills as an artist, writer, or resource curator, then read more about how you can help at yvfi.ca/join-us.

So... This is kind of brilliant. This leaves me feeling like being vegan or plant based is becoming pleasantly normalized.
