Also, maybe this is old news, but did you know that Calgary

made PETA's top 6 list of veg-friendly Canadian cities?

Here's the link

Hey my partner lives in Calgary and I will be out visiting him in about a week. He just moved there for school so he doesn't know the vegan offerings of the city. Any thing I should check out while I'm there?

Hi there everyone!



I'm new to the group and am thinking about making some anti- "I love Alberta Beef" bumper stickers and am looking for some witty ideas.



So far I have:



"I will not eat Alberta Beef" (not very funny but a powerful statment)

"I love Alberta carrots" (instead of the picture of the cow there will be a carrot)

"I love Alberta Vegetarians"

"I love Alberta Cows Alive" (the word Alive will be inserted on top of the picture of the cow)

"I still love Alberta carrots" (same thing as the one above but with the word still on top of the heart)



These are just a few ideas that i've come up with and would love to have some input. And when I have them made i'll let ya know!!



Thanks

-Beth

Hi Beth,



I like those ones.



Also maybe "I (Heart) (Alberta Map) (Cow Head)" and the under the whole thing it could say "so I stopped eating them!"

I'm in Calgary too.



Nice to see a few more Alberta veggies. *happydance*



I'm Lacykitten, aka Lacy (how mundane!) and I'm the freaky orange-haired chick that harasses Calgary groups to come to the dang vegan/vegetarian meetups. *twitch*







Look me up if you're in town. Or live here. I want to meet more veg*ans because I know.. like.. none, socially, except my best friend who lives in Sylvan Lake. I meet a couple via Meetup and at Soar/CARC events but.. that just doesn't cut it. I wanna socialize!

Hey Dan!

Hey Lacy!





Wow vegetarians and vegans everywhere! It's time for me to do a happy dance too



Dancing broccoli...only on a veggie board



Thanks for the input on the stickers...i keep seeing too many "I still love alberta beef" stickers on people's cars. Ugh!! You know, everyday I go to the U of C and I see this van parked in one of the lots. It is one of the vans for this group called Active Living or something like that and on one side of the van they have an Alberta Cattle Commission advertisement professionally sprayed/mounted/whatever with the same message as the stickers you see on cars.



It just makes you wonder what people are thinking when they do things like try to promote a healthy lifestyle whilst maintaining (what appears to be) a very healthy relationship with a biased and incredibly unhealthy interest - the Alberta Cattle Commission. Obviously they care little about people and more about keeping their wallets filled with a healthy stash of cash. Poor, poor fools



I'll let you all know when the stickers are done. Sorry that I can't make it to any of the vegan meet-ups. I work on the weekends during the day



Take care all,

-Beth

I love Alberta Carrots too! I have often thought about that bumper sticker!



So, yeah, I've started a new veg group here in the city. Our first event is at Mt. Everest Nepalese restaurant on Nov. 5th. We have just formed and are in the infant stage. We're just letting things go as they go and taking it one event at a time. There are a lot of ideas floating around. I know we will be successful. Our vision is to create a group based in education, support and community. Non-judgement is key too. Different people become veg for different reasons and they are all good reasons!



If you'd like to be on our mailing list, please e-mail me and it shall be done!



Hoping to see you and all your veg mates soon!!!





Peace.

i know a couple people that are veganish, but not strict, hardcore about it.



Did you know that 4% of Canadians are vegan?!?! Last year, CTV ran a special on "what Canadians eat" and that'w hat they said. Lots of vegans around hehe.

I've started a new forum for Calgary and area Veggies.



http://www.lacykitten.com/vego/board/



If you're interested, there's also NewCalgVeg, the new vegetarian group of Calgary.. which has it's own section of the board. You can join that group by sending an email to [email protected]



There are various groups and events in Calgary, I'm hoping to get them all on board with this so it ends up a big community board!



Thanks!
