Protest at lo­cal fash­ion phe­nom

Richmond Hill Post - - CONTENTS -

Canada Goose cloth­ing com­pany, founded in North York, is plan­ning to go pub­lic as soon as this month in a move that could peg the win­ter parka ped­dler’s value at close to $2 bil­lion. Amer­i­can ac­tress Mag­gie Q and PETA (Peo­ple for the Eth­i­cal Treat­ment of An­i­mals) were hop­ing to send a mes­sage to the com­pany when they showed up at its doorstep to protest the use of coy­ote fur in the parkas worn by ev­ery­one from Ri­hanna to Drake.

On Jan. 16, an­i­mal rights ac­tivists, some cov­ered in a blood-like sub­stance, protested out­side of the com­pany’s head­quar­ters. Canada Goose has long been crit­i­cized for its use of fur, but the com­pany states: “We strongly sup­port the eth­i­cal, re­spon­si­ble and sus­tain­able use of fur.”
