Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Join Anthony Marr and Vancouver Animal Defense League in asking for ban of shark fins in Burnaby

The Vancouver Animal Defense League is joining the fight to save our finned friends! We want to see shark fins banned not only in Vancouver, but we are pushing for a simultaneous ban in Burnaby, Richmond AND Vancouver.
We want the sale, possession and trade of shark fins to be banned outright in all three cities.
On June 25th we will be appearing before the city council of Burnaby to speak for our finned friends. Vancouver activist Anthony Marr will be speaking and he has only 10 minutes to convince the city why this ban should be put into place. The meeting room fits 90 people and we want to make sure there is standing room only.
We will be arriving at city hall an hour before the meeting starts to rally for the sharks. Bring your signs and banners!
This demo is one of the most important we will see all year, bring your friends and family!
Watch for the Richmond rally coming soon!

  2. […] Today he comes to us to speak about a current campaign that he is working on in conjunction with the Vancouver Animal Defense League, which entails having the use and sale of shark fins banned outright and simultaneously in our local cities of Vancouver, Richmond and Burnaby (following very recent and pending bans in Port Moody, Coquitlam and North Vancouver). On Monday, June 25th, on behalf of the Vancouver Animal Defense League, he will be making a presentation to Burnaby City Council with the goal of persuading them to implement a ban of shark fin in their city. A large rally is planned by VADL to happen before the meeting, and everyone is invited to attend this, and the meeting, to show your support for the sharks! Full information about this event can be found on Facebook here, and on the VADL’s website here. […]
