Today in Foods 11/12 we had a debate on whether Canada should ban animal products - completely. In other words, whether or not ALL Canadians should become vegans! There were four groups and each had some pretty good points - especially the one I was in. :p Basically, the main concerns were that a lot of jobs would be lost, the meat/dairy industry would crash (yeah..), and people would have a hard time getting the protein they need. But let's face it, meateaters.. you just can't imagine saying bye-bye to your beloved FLESH!!!
If Canada did make it illegal to grow animals for food, the government would put programs in place to help people get into the vegan lifestyle. Yet, realistically, of course, this new way of nourishing ourselves would take years to make happen: the number of crop farms and orchards would need to be built up first, alternatives for animal by-products would need to be produced on a much larger scale (like glue from plants, pleather etc.), and a whole new system of production and transportation would have to be put in place. BUT in the end, no more animal cruelty, no more methane farts causing global warming, and a MUCH healthier society. Wooo! Go Veggies!
