He has shown his support for BeFairBeVegan as far back as 2016, when the campaign first launched in New York City.

‚ÄúIn addressing our speciesist attitudes toward other animals, BeFairBeVegan encourages us to consider that our core similarities are far deeper than our surface differences. Now, more than ever, the world needs to hear this message,”¬†he said¬†at the time.

The BeFairBeVegan message will be broadcast for eight weeks across across Toronto, displaying images on streetcars, bus murals, transit shelters, and now, St. George Subway Station.

Founded in 2016, BeFairBeVegan’s message focuses on the inner experiences of the animals we use for food, fabric, research, entertainment, and more.
