Activists Urge Canadians to Go Meatless on Mondays

With mounting environmental issues, a health epidemic, and devastating world hunger statistics, two concerned Canadians make an easy case for Meatless Mondays.

In a recent opinion piece on the Toronto Star website, political pundit Stephen Hampton and Humane Society International worker Sayara Thurston urged readers to indulge in Meatless Mondays. The two authors touched on all the key arguments for going vegetarian, which include bolstering health, alleviating world hunger, stopping animal suffering, and combating climate change. Hampton and Thurston noted that since Meatless Monday was conceived at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, it has experienced a wellspring of support from various sources that include television personalities such as Oprah to whole cities such as Vancouver. “It’s clear that all Canadians can afford to go meat-free one day a week,” write the activists. “What is becoming less clear is whether any of us…can afford not to make cutting down on meat consumption a priority.”
