Generation Trudeau: Is it time to lose the pig-skin and make football halal?

David MenziesMission Specialist

Football’s a great game but not everyone can enjoy it. Vegans and Muslims who might otherwise want to join in the fun, would hesitate thanks to the material used to make footballs. 

Watch as I ask members of Generation Trudeau on the University of Toronto campus if it’s time to break with tradition in the name of inclusiveness and stop using pig-skin footballs.

It’s no surprise that for these students, inclusiveness trumps tradition and record-keeping when it comes to the material used to make a football.

It would be funny if it weren’t so sad.

Dave - forget the pig -skin stuff—— If Justin ever tossed that ball – all his voters would be naked – and exposed as Groupies.

I don’t know, David. That synthetic football looks like it’s made out of peritoneum-based products. What about global warming? Don’t they care about the planet?
