Well, if city councillors and the local newspaper feel it is okay to do so, then so do I.
I would like to tell these animal rights activists to "piss off."
It is not anyone's right to tell people what they may eat, when it is legal. Cities do not have the authority to do so.
Next, they may be telling us we must all be vegans because of their beliefs.
I will make a deal with Dania Sheldon: If she is willing to back me in my personal political quests, I will certainly be willing to forgo shark fin soup! In the meantime, I am willing to stand behind Burnaby city council and shout in unison (una voce dicentes): piss off!
