Winnipeg, Man. – Below, please find a statement from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman in response to reports that workers at Canada Goose’s Winnipeg factory must use portable toilets that are only cleaned every four days:
Canada Goose seems to care as little about its workers as it does about the coyotes and geese who are violently killed before their fur and feathers are used for its coats. PETA hopes this shameful episode will be a wakeup call for anyone who somehow still supports this exploitative company.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
