Montreal – Last night, as Morrissey performed at MTelus wearing a “#CanadaGooseKills” shirt, fans gathered at a booth hosted by PETA to support the singer’s boycott of the Canadian retailer. They signed a petition urging the company’s CEO, Dani Reiss, to drop cruelly obtained fur and feathers from its coats and posed for photos in front of a giant “coyote” while holding signs reading, “#CanadaGooseKills.” The petition will be delivered to Reiss at the conclusion of the star’s tour, and photos are available here.

Earlier this month, Morrissey wrote his own letter to Reiss, saying, “I’m writing to urge Canada Goose to act more like its namesake (e.g., smart, brave, and willing to fly off in a new direction) by making the bold ethical choice to remove coyote fur and down feathers from its parkas . . . Until then, I’ll be collecting signatures during my Canadian tour calling for Canada Goose to stop killing animals for coats.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part that “animals are not ours to wear”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist view. For more information about Canada Goose, visit PETA.org.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
