VancouverWhat:    PETA supporters armed with letter boards spelling out the message “Canada Goose Kills” will gather outside the CF Pacific Centre this evening to protest the opening of a new Canada Goose store there. PETA’s spirited campaign against the cruel retailer spans the U.S., Canada, and other countries around the world.

When:    Friday, November 2, 5:30 p.m.

Where:    The CF Pacific Centre, 701 W. Georgia St. (at the intersection with Howe Street), Vancouver

“Every Canada Goose coat represents the suffering of coyotes who were caught in painful steel traps and geese whose throats were slit,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is calling on Vancouver consumers to refuse to give a dime to this cruel company until it stops tormenting and killing animals for its coats.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—has released a video exposé revealing that workers at a Canada Goose down supplier rounded up terrified geese who piled on top of one another in an attempt to escape, causing suffocation and death. Coyotes used for the company’s fur trim can suffer in traps for days before they’re shot or bludgeoned to death. Trapped coyote mothers desperate to get back to their starving pups have even attempted to chew off their own limbs to escape.

“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
