Halifax Activism & Car Culture

Marc, Levi, Lauren, and Rob

This week, we’re joined by Marc, an esteemed member of ARCH (Animal Rights Collective of Halifax). He’ll tell us about the group, east-coast animal activism, and the hottest veg-friendly hangouts around town. Then we’ll switch gears and speak with Dr. Levi Waldron about his passion for bicycles and veganism…

Cars play such a big part in many of our lives that we are no longer aware of how much they influence our bodies and minds. Although car culture continues to perpetuate systemic social inequality and affect a devastating environmental toll, the connections between the automotive industry and animal rights might initially seem obscure. Levi, a long-time cycling activist with a doctorate in Forestry and Environmental Studies, will illuminate some of these connections in his discussion of car culture, cycling politics, and their impacts on animals.
