Heal the Climate? Heal the System. An Interview with Sailesh Rao
By Victoria Moran

I’ve had the wonderful opportunity recently to spend time and absorb a bit of the brilliance of systems engineer Sailesh Rao, PhD, who spent most of his career developing a little thing we’re all familiar with: the Internet! When Dr. Rao, a lifelong vegetarian, learned about the climate/agriculture connection, he went vegan immediately and left his high-status engineering position to devote himself full time to saving this planet. He founded  ClimateHealers.org and has joined the production teams of several vegan documentaries, including Cowspiracy, What the Health, and A Prayer for Compassion, set to debut in October.

Nation Rising
By Sheanne Moskaluk

Hear some Passionate Highlights of the The Nation Rising 2018 Protest Speeches and Interviews at Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Canada.

This past July, Dan and I flew east to our hometown of Ottawa, Ontario.  Dan was born in Ottawa and I had moved there with my family when I was in Grade 2.  We grew up in the same neighbourhood, met and got married in Ottawa in 1989, before starting our life together in British Columbia.  So while all of that history might have been enough to lure us back for a visit 29 years later, we made the journey for a reason much bigger than ourselves.

On July 14th, we had the privilege of participating in the first annual Nation Rising March and Rally.  Dan and I, along with 500 other Canadians, marched through the streets of downtown Ottawa, arriving on Parliament Hill.  At the foot of the Peace Tower, we all delivered a list of demands to our Federal government: Read more

The Animal Protection Party of Canada: Featuring Jordan Reichert
By John Reichert

image: Brodie Frehlich Photography. Led by Liz White, the Animal Protection Party of Canada (APPC) is Canada’s only federal political party that gives the animals and the environment a political voice – the powerful, national voice needed to secure protection for all animals and the environment. Jordan Reichert is the APPC West Coast Campaign Officer. Vote for Jordan Reichert October 20th for Victoria Council. A win in a municipality will have positive ramifications far beyond the city, since many federal and provincial legislators begin their careers at the municipal level. Jordan’s work as a Victoria city councillor would show voters across Canada that legislators like Jordan can both advance animal and environmental protection issues and be tireless advocates of the best kind for the constituents. See his platform of public policy that reflects the values, needs, and diversity of Victoria here.

The Animal Protection Party of Canada is committed to the promotion and adherence to veganism. All of our team is vegan as are a great number of supporters. However, you don’t have to be vegan to support us. We are an inclusive political party that is just as dedicated to being compassionate and welcoming to those who are not vegan as we are to the animals whose interests we have in mind when expressing vegan values.

Okanagan Health Forum: Conference on Health & Fitness Powered By Plants 23rd of September 2018
By Shauna Gardiner

Yesterday was a fabulous day and this morning I woke up feeling as if I could change the world!  I attended the Health & Fitness, Empowered by Plants day of education in Penticton.  It was put on by the Okanagan Health Forum, which is a group organized in 2005 to provide cutting-edge research in lifestyle medicine to health care professionals and the general public.  It was also formed to “bring internationally acclaimed authorities on plant-based diets to inspire and motivate our residents to make choices that support exceptional health and well-being”.

Well, that they sure did! They had a professional line up of plant-based speakers covering topics ranging from how to heal yourself from lifestyle diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes and cancer, to the plant-based diet of a world class athlete and stories of how changing to a plant-based diet helped a couple from Naramata, BC overcome obesity and stage 4 kidney cancer.
