Gone Vegan

Lindsay Hutton discovers the politics and pragmatics behind a meat and dairy-free diet.

Newfoundland's Tory premier raised a few eyebrows by having a heart procedure administered in the United States recently. And the headline-piggy-backing PR department at PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) took note, sending Williams a gift-basket of vegan treats, including "an East Coast Canadian delicacy called veggie kelp caviar, which has the salty flavour of seal meat but none of the harmful fat." 

Apparently, according to an aide to the premier, Matthews takes a daily dose of seal fat in capsule form for the Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Say what you will about the seal hunt, but somebody buy the man some flax seeds. Gross.
