    Council members cannot be mandated to eat vegan meals, however they may accept a friendly challenge. Like other Vancouverites, they may also be swayed by communications and education about the ecological footprint impacts of various dietary choices

    Wonderful suggestion! UN and EU already urged a global shift to animal-free diet to curb global warming and protect the environment (http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/jun/02/un-report-meat-free-diet). Let Vancouver be the first city to lead this noble trend - a vegan city!
    Vegan Vancouver - the coolest city, the greenest city...

    Low footprint food choices are not the same as vegan food choices in all cases, the analysis is more complex than this. Generally a low footprint diet is local, seasonal food, and limits consumption of red meat, dairy, and some grains. Low footprint food choices are included in the draft Greenest City Action Plan and will be discussed through community engagement activities.

    Vegan diet + animal-free products are the greenest way of living.
    Per the latest World Watch Institute report, Livestock industry is responsible for more than 50% of the total greenhouse gases. Just recently UN has urged a global shift to a meat-free, diary-free diet.
    If no one eats meat, no one would produce. The currently livestock industry employees can transition to grow organic vegan food for us all!
