Here is a post I found yesterday on the Mercy for Animals website:
Ontario Legally Recognises Ethical Veganism
“In December, the Ontario Human Rights Commission redefined creed to include non-religious beliefs that like religion, substantially influence a person’s identity, world-view, and way of life. Because ethical veganism is a way of life, it falls under this definition.
So what does this all mean? The code sets guidelines for service providers on respectful treatment and accommodation of people with creed-based requirements. Camille Labchuk, executive director of Animal Justice, the animal rights group that worked tirelessly to ensure the code was updated, said, “The policy recommends that a person in a hospital facility who has a creed-based need for vegetarian food be provided with appropriate food by the facility.”
Labchuk also noted that the new code protects vegan students from participating in dissections, and vegan employees from wearing work uniforms that contain fur or leather.
We applaud Animal Justice and others who pressed for the updated code, as this truly sets an important precedent.

Miranda out and about

I have been on holiday to Leuven in Belgium!  I chose to visit Leuven because I discovered that they have a Loving Hut.  After arriving I was ecstatic to find that they also have Vegaverso a vegan cafe, Greenway a vegetarian cafe, and Shavt which is a vegan food shop!

Here I am at Vegaverso, vegan cafe in Leuven, Belgium!

This is a wonderful cafe which serves a delicious and tasty selection of vegan sandwiches and cakes!

What you might have for lunch...

It took me a while to decide what to have, there is so much to choose from!

Inside Vegaverso, taarts and cupcakes

I had a peanut butter and jelly cupcake, a vanilla cupcake and a chocolate cupcake, on different visits!  They were all delicious and beautiful!

More cake selection

I also tried a chocolate coconut macaroon, and an oat cake, which were fantastic!

More cake selection!

This is what I had on my first visit to Vegaverso!  It was the most scrumptious food you will ever taste!  I had vegan cheese with vegenaise and a blueberry cupcake!  It was wonderful!
