Q1.BIOGRAPHICAL PROFILE

I am an animal liberation activist. I am also an earth liberation activist, and I work against genetically modified organic foods (“gmo”). I am in my mid-thirties and I have (finally) moved out of the city to find some peace and quiet, and live a less stressful life in a rural community. The city offers too many distractions that impede my concentration on work. I am much more concerned now about my own health, as I have experienced the detrimental effects that city life creates, such as increased pollution and stress, and the overall deterioration in the quality of life.

I was born in Montreal in 1964, but moved to Toronto with my family when I was three years old. My father, who worked for the Canadian national radio network CBC at the time, sought a transfer from Montreal, which was experiencing political tensions and violence from the Quebec separatist group FLQ. I lived in Toronto until 1989, when I left to live in the more relaxed climate of Vancouver, BC, on Canada’s west coast (I affectionately refer to this as “the year I escaped from Toronto”). I then began several years of travel and activism around North America.

I enjoy the work that I do, which is currently to be the spokesperson for the Animal Liberation Front (ALF). I enjoy the challenge of engaging the media to increase the importance of animal liberation issues in mainstream society. I enjoy speaking out in support of activists who risk everything for nonhuman animals. I enjoy representing the outlaws of our society.
