#72: Vegan Food & Rescued Dogs With Pro CFL Player John Rush

Episode 72 of the Paw & Order podcast features an exciting and energetic interview with vegan CFL player John Rush, who plays with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Because of the pandemic, the Blue Bombers haven’t been able to play this year, but John hasn’t missed a beat. He’s been using his free time to launch an awesome vegan food blog: Rescue Dog Kitchen. John discusses what it’s like being a vegan pro athlete, his journey to veganism, and how he uses the blog and his social media, which prominently features his huge rescued dogs Bone and Bailey, to advocate for animals and plant-based eating. Listeners be warned: this interview features some spicy language!

In the news, co-hosts Camille Labchuk and Jessica Scott-Reid discuss Jessica’s new piece in Sentient Media exploring why animal rescuers avoid calling authorities when animals are in need, Jessica’s new article in the Winnipeg Press about a dog named Ruby who slowly died in a conibear trap in front of her guardian, David Suzuki joining the fight to ban fur farming and a new parliamentary petition to end the industry, and Bryce Casavant, the BC conservation officer who was wrongfully fired for refusing to kill two bear cubs, winning his legal fight against his union and the government.

The Hero of the episode goes to Evolve Our Prison Farms for their new report on why the Canadian Correctional Service’s proposed goat factory farm prison program would have devastating effects on incarcerated individuals, animals, and the environment.

The Zero of the episode is the dairy industry (again!) for continuing with its annual #Februdairy campaign. Luckily, animal advocates are taking over the hashtag to spread truth about the suffering that animals endure in the dairy industry, and why we should be choosing dairy-free products that are kinder to animals, our health, and the planet.
