Pamela Anderson asks Trudeau to serve inmates vegan meals to save cash

Actress Pamela Anderson is asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to take meat and milk off prison menus to help the planet and the health of federal inmates — and save taxpayers some cash, to boot.

The former Baywatch star makes the pitch in a letter to Trudeau part of her work with the animal-rights group PETA, writing that she hopes Canada embraces what she calls a “simple but effective way to reduce costs and improve lives.”

She wants Canada’s federal penitentiaries to serve vegan meals of beans, rice, lentils, pasta, vegetables and fruits, which she bills as sources of all the nutrients one would need, “at a fraction of the cost of meats and cheeses,” since most vegan ingredients don’t need to be refrigerated.

In its most recent departmental plan, Correctional Service Canada says it provides nutrition “sufficient in quality and quantity” and in line with the Canada Food Guide.

Anderson says the newly retooled food guide put less of an emphasis on eating meat and dairy, instead suggesting more plant-based proteins in Canadians’ diets.

Her letter also points out a UN climate panel report calling for a dietary shift to help combat climate change — another interest for the actress who backed the Greens and their leader Elizabeth May in the just-concluded federal election.

Four years ago, Anderson travelled to Arizona to serve vegetarian meals to the approximately 8,000 inmates at the Maricopa County Jail alongside Joe Arpaio, the controversial local sheriff who made the decision. Arpaio estimated the move would save US$100,000 a year.

Anderson says the jail reduced costs by $273,000 when it switched to vegetarian meals, although reported savings vary widely.

She says the savings could be even higher for Canada’s almost 40,000 inmates — a number that includes inmates in provincial jails, which fall outside federal jurisdiction.

A report in May from Statistics Canada said that in the fiscal year 2017-18, there were on average 24,657 adult inmates in provincial or territorial jails, while the federal portion was 14,129.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Oct. 31, 2019.

Pamela Anderson spends some quality time with her sons

She’s gone from being a popular actress and model to focusing on her outspoken political activism.

Pamela Anderson took a break from it all on Monday to enjoy a casual lunch with her two sons, Brandon Lee, 23, and Dylan Lee, 21.

The 52–year–old Baywatch star dined with her boys at the exclusive Little Beach House in Malibu, a members-only spot that caters to the creative community.

Pamela was dressed casually for the afternoon get together with a low-cut white T-shirt that highlighted her famous cleavage.

The 5ft7in model paired her top with some tight blue jeans that showcased her trim legs, as well as a classic pair of black heels.

Her blonde locks were styled messily, and she sported a pair of glasses cocked up over her head.

Dylan matched his mom’s low-key look with a plain white T-shirt and a pair of red sweatpants with white sandals.

Brandon made it unanimous with his own white T-shirt, which he wore with a paint-speckled pair of black shorts and weather white high top sneakers.

The three had dined at Little Beach House Malibu, an outpost of the London-based SoHo House.

The exclusive network of clubs around the globe requires members to pay multiple thousands of dollars for an ‘all houses’ pass, or a smaller fee to only gain access to a local club.

However, the ultra-exclusive Malibu house requires an additional fee for entrance in addition to the general pass.

Pamela’s two sons are from her tumultuous marriage to Mötley Crüe rocker Tommy Lee.

The couple got married only four days after first meeting each other.

The union was marred by a domestic violence conviction for Tommy, and they divorced in 1998.

Most recently, the Home Improvement actress was in a relationship with French footballer Adil Rami from 2017–2019.

Pamela has stepped up her activism in recent years with campaigns for animal rights and in support of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
