From the Toronto Star: “Jack Layton is sitting on the patio of Bodega restaurant on Baldwin St. in Toronto, spreading foie gras on toast and, it seems, trying out portions of his stump speech.” This quote was a springboard for an open discussion on how best to reach our political leaders in Canada, reform the political climate, and combine our efforts to make some real change for animals in this country before a spring election. Should we focus on the NDP, our best hope for a left-leaning government that might attend to animal rights issues? Are the Greens a viable candidate? Should we even resort to the numbers game that is “democracy” or focus on our grassroots movement? Where is our power and how can we expand it?
