Yesterday I started the morning off leafleting with volunteer Hiruni Erantha at the Great Glebe Garage Sale in Ottawa. There was a huge crowd, and I was able to engage in a lot of conversations.

I then headed to the Kanata Ribfest with volunteers Mich Shepard and Darlene Levecque. We had a TV playing footage of farming practices—the sounds drew in more people who then tried Animal Equality’s iAnimal virtual reality headsets. We also politely approached people and let them know we had VR technology showing the life of a pig in a gestation crate. We had some amazing conversations—some booth vendors even went out of their way to tell us to keep it up.

There were so many amazing experiences, my heart was shining. My favorite was with a mother and her three children. They all watched the VR and were shocked by it. We engaged in a really great conversation and the children listened intently. The mom was vegetarian and thanked me for helping to educate her children. She knew it was going to help them make the switch. I discussed the issues in the dairy and egg industries with them as well. All were once again shocked and left saying they were going to be making active changes toward going vegan.

Reader and iAnimal viewer at Kanata Ribfest

Today at the Kanata Ribfest, Mich and I were joined by volunteer Shawna Harrison. We had a great conversation with a gentleman who was shocked by the information we gave him, even before watching the VR. Once he did, he let us know that he thought it was horrible what the animals go through and that he wanted to go vegan.

We also had a great conversation with a dad who thanked us for the booklet. When we asked him if he was interested in going vegan, he said, “Yes, actually, but I need to do it right.” We discussed what that meant, and he was intrigued and said he would check it out. Never a wasted day!
