WOW! As if there was ever any doubt that Canadians rock, this question was laid to rest this past weekend at the peta2 Take Action Conference!

Over 175 students attended the event, making it far and away the most successful one yet! Here are a few of the highlights, and you can also check out lots of other pictures on our Flickr page.

Here is peta2 head honcho, Dan Shannon, addressing the crowd during the “Animal Rights 101” segment!

Enjoying some of the AMAZING veggie burgers and vegan drumsticks that were donated for the conference!

Finally, this blog would not be complete without one of my personal highlights. Here are Brendan and Ayden (brothers who attended the conference together), singing their anti-KFC songs, including a spin-off of the holiday classic, “Silent Night”. :)



All in all, it was an incredible experience, so keep your eyes and ears open for when the Take Action Conference comes to your town!

Ryan!

    OMG thats me and my bro singing our songs!! that was so fun!!! the first was a spoof on the tsc stores commerical, we replaced it with KFC stores. The lyrics were:
    “KFC stores, they don’t care,
    about your health or
    Chickens welfare!”
    And our silent night one :
    ” Silent night,
    all is not right,
    KFC tortures me!
    KFC chickens live in hell,
    Where they come from all is not well
    Boycott kfc, Bo – oy cott K—F—C!”
    So yah that conference was the best!!!! I feel so motivated now, and the protest at the end was the best ever! we got above 90 honks( signs of support from passing cars), I was counting them! and we were only protesting for like 20 minutes. Anyways that was such an awesome conference!!!!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
