TVA, Vegetarian Food Fair, Dorit, veg articles

Toronto Vegetarian Association - Vegetarian information brought to you by Canada's largest and oldest vegetarian organization

They are hosting the 22nd annual Vegetarian Food Fair in Toronto this weekend, Sept 8, 9 & 10.
& this is the main reason why I have today off. ..because I will be working at the show all weekend. It’s the kids 1st day of school today, so this is perfect. I just started cookies.. will make them breakfast & juice etc & will go wake them up soon. ..but it’s nice to have a few minutes of quiet first.

Formerly known as "Goveg.com"Aug. 16, 2006In March 2003 Karin Robertson legally changed her name to GoVeg.com to get people focused on animal rights and vegetarianism. Then in 2005 she was followed by Chris Garnett who became Kentuckyfriedcruelty.com, and Brandi Valladolid who became RinglingBeatsAnimals.com Both Karin and Chris have now reverted back to their original birth names. Chris was experiencing difficulties applying for a passport. And for Karin, "It was just a great way to pique people's interest. I never thought I would be Goveg.com forever." It seems to have worked. Both the original story and even the switch back made headlines. And web traffic to the sites shot up, as did requests for vegetarian starter kits. Chris even helped inspire one of our Veggie Challenge participants to go veg. Via: CNN and SuperVegan.com
