PETA THREAT­ENS TO SUE OVER RE­MOVAL OF CANADA GOOSE ADS

National Post (National Edition) - - CANADA -

The Peo­ple for the Eth­i­cal Treat­ment of An­i­mals is threat­en­ing to sue the City of Toronto and As­tral Me­dia for re­mov­ing anti-Canada Goose ads. The an­i­mal rights group says As­tral took down the ads that crit­i­cized the Toronto-based lux­ury jacket maker for us­ing goose down and coy­ote fur in its jack­ets. The ads fea­tured im­ages of both an­i­mals with cap­tions “I’m a liv­ing be­ing, not a piece of fur trim” and “I’m a liv­ing be­ing, not jacket fill­ing” and were put up at bus shel­ters be­tween Canada Goose’s head­quar­ters and the home of the com­pany’s CEO, Dani Reiss. A spokesper­son for Bell Me­dia, which owns As­tral, con­firmed it re­moved the ads be­cause they breached advertising stan­dards that re­stricts ads from dis­parag­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions or caus­ing pub­lic ridicule.
