Protesters target fur use by Canada Goose

By Jacob Romphf and David Sagolj

With the weather gradually getting colder, winter jackets will soon be pulled out of closets or purchased in stores. Some of those will be adorned with fur, including the increasingly popular Canada Goose brand. The animal-rights group Direct Action Everywhere Ottawa recently protested Canada Goose and other manufacturers’ use of real fur in their jackets, saying there is no reason for people to kill animals like coyotes and use their fur. Canada Goose defends the practice, arguing that fur is unequalled by synthetic trim and that it all comes from trappers who follow strict standards.
