According to the Globe and Mail, the number of Canadians ditching meat is on the rise!
“Annual per-capita meat consumption has declined since 1999, led by a 31-per-cent drop in pork and a 19-per-cent reduction in beef, even though disposable incomes rose steadily in the same period,” the article explains.
This should come as no surprise. Results from a 2013 survey found that there was a nearly 10 percent drop in meat consumption in Canada between 2001 and 2013.
While a variety of factors has contributed to this decline, increased awareness of the treatment of animals on modern farms has undoubtedly played a part.
Video footage recently obtained and released by Mercy For Animals Canada revealed the sickening cruelty involved in Canadian pork production.

Canadians have never been more aware of the impact of their dietary choices on themselves, the environment, and the animals who suffer needlessly for the production of meat, dairy, and eggs.
The best way to help safeguard animals from abuse is simply to leave meat, dairy, and eggs out of your diet. For tips and delicious vegan recipes, visit ChooseVeg.com.
