    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

    We gotta practice what we preach. And if the Head of the UN's IPCC is saying being Vegetarian or Vegan is the single best thing we can do to curb Climate Change.... then our 'Green' City team should be standing up and saying "I will eat only Vegan meals. Why? Because it is the Greenest thing an individual can do, and am walk the talk of Green"

    Otherwise..... Hypocrites. yes no? Really, everyone who is anyone in the Climate Change roll of experts is saying be vegetarian. Head of Nasa's Climate Change, Head of IPCC, UN's VP, Al Gore now even says we all gotta cut down, and he is "trying my best"

    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.
