PETA’s new Thanksgiving billboard will sure catch your attention if you are in Ontario anywhere near Windsor. The billboard features a bright Turkey face alongside the message, “I’m ME, Not MEAT. See the Individual. Go Vegan.”

PETA’s new Thanksgiving billboard in the city comes after the heated debate over city council’s decision to approve grants to install a new multi-million packaging plant earlier this year, on Mercer Street.

Visit Huron Church Road that lies between Malden Road and Kenora Street, lying near Applebee’s, Fred’s Farm Fresh International Market, and several other fast-food restaurants.

Ingrid Newkirk, President PETA, has been quoted as saying, “this billboard will inspire people to consider who that bite of Thanksgiving turkey really is—and that’s a gentle young bird who was strung upside down and slaughtered. PETA is calling on all compassionate people to gobble up hearty and delicious vegan roasts, stews, and veggies this Thanksgiving instead of the mutilated corpse of a bird who wanted to live.”


PETA, in one of its reports, claimed that Canadians bought 2.2 million Turkeys on Thanksgiving last year. This is equal to 31 per cent of the total Turkeys sold throughout the last year. Turkeys are sensitive and spirited birds who turn out to be loving and protective parents to their found ones. Slaughter houses follow extremely inhumane practices, such as, hanging the birds by feet from metal shackles, electrified baths and there are high chances that they are still conscious when their throats are slit.

PETA promotes and encourages people allover the world to celebrate Thanksgiving with them by taking their ‘Vegan Persuasion Pledge’. For every 100 such pledges, PETA promises to donate a vegan dinner to charities working for the welfare of under-served families. You can support PETA by logging into their website.
