Ontario Officials Rule Veganism is a Human Right Legally Protected from Discrimination

In a huge victory for the rights of those following a plant-based diet, the Human Rights Commission of Ontario, Canada, has ruled that veganism is a human right that should be legally protected from discrimination under law similar to how religious beliefs are protected. Under the new law, service providers such as schools, hospitals and employers may not discriminate against an individual or their requests for being vegan. This means that hospitals must now provide vegan meals upon request, and students cannot be forced to dissect animals. Read the article here. Lets hope other countries, including New Zealand, follow suit.
