Toronto: Protest Canada Goose Cruelty at their Shareholder Meeting!
August 15 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Please join local PETA supporters in protesting the use of animals in fashion outside Canada Goose’s headquarters during the company’s virtual shareholder meeting. The Canada Goose symbol is ubiquitous in cold climates, but it represents anything but warmth. Every single piece of fur trim or plucked down used by Canada Goose comes from an animal who didn’t want to be killed. The fur trim that lines the hoods of the company’s winter jackets comes from wild coyotes who were trapped, killed, and skinned. And no matter where down is sourced, birds used by the down industry are inevitably sent to the slaughterhouse where standard practice is to hang them upside down, stun them, and then slit their throats, often while they are still conscious.
Please join PETA for a very important and spirited demonstration to speak out against Canada Goose’s use of geese and coyotes for their outerwear.
WHEN: Thursday, August 15 at 9:45 am to 11 am
WHERE: Outside the Canada Goose headquarters at 250 Bowie Ave Toronto, ON M6E 2R9 (please see this map: https://goo.gl/maps/Da4zrXWejwLt1grN9)
