The Megaphone’s Sean Condon, the Vegan Congress with Julie Andreyev and Trudy Chalmers – for WOC Jan 29 14

The Megaphone is Vancouver’s street magazine, and Sean Condon has been its Executive Director for many years.  Today Sean talks about the changing DTES (Downtown Eastside), how gentrification is impacting the local community and also outlying regions (like Abbotsford) where poor people are moving after being forced out of their own neighbourhood.  Also, a methadone alert after changes from Health Canada.   Eric Nordal, from Social Coast, offers information about upcoming activist events in February, themed mostly around protecting the Agricultural Land Commission.  Julie Andreyev and Trudy Chalmers, both employees at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design,  celebrate an enormously successful first event after launching the Vegan Congress in 2013.  They’re both artists, Trudy’s an opera singer, and they talk about why they believe a Vegan lifestyle is the healthiest, kindest, and most environmentally friendly way to exist on this planet at this time.
