Glide (Tomorrow Edition): A Runway Event for Our Oceans

This event happens Feb. 23 at Envy Nightclub (2300 Dewdney Ave) at 7 p.m. It’s being hosted by an organization called Fin Free Regina in association with an organization called Shark Truth that aims to raise awareness about the wholesale slaughter of sharks (around 70 million annually) for their fins which are regarded as a gourmet delicacy in soup.

Shark Truth was started by Claudia Li, and she’ll be in town to speak about the situation, and to promote awareness about a private member’s bill (Bill C-380) that was put forward by New Westminster-Coquitlam NDP MP (I kid you not) Fin Donnelly that would ban the import of shark fins across Canada.

The evening will be hosted by Jayden Pfeifer (Red Hot Riot), and will include a performance by Belle Plaine, a fashion show featuring work by local designers co-ordinated by SEED Sustainable Style, a silent auction and refreshments.

  1. I don’t know if this site still exists, VBS.tv

    The Toxic series of documentaries are top notch. The Plastic Island is about 150 k N.NW of Hawaii.

    Birds and Sea Creatures are Not likely to succombe to this , human environmental toxic cesspool at all. Plus irridated sea water since 3/11…who in Sk, eats seafood anyway.

  2. The Happy Garden in Regina has shark-fin soup on its menu. Once I saw that, I stopped going. Anyone know of other restaurants that do so?

  3. Personally, I’d also like to see Fois Gras banned in Regina. I can’t bring myself to go to La Bodega anymore once I saw it on the menu.

  4. Thank-you number 3! I never understood how a restaurant that promotes itself as envirnomentally friendly also has a dish on the menu that requires a LIVE duck to have it’s liver ripped out from it.

  5. That’s only after being forced fed more grain than it can stand, multiple times a day so it’s liver can become diseased and fatty.

    Although it’s hard to say that’s worse when you know what happens to chickens, pigs, and cows.

  6. Thanks to everyone who came out for this event and thanks for the post PD! We raised over $7000 for Shark Truth :)
