Toronto – Below, please find a statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk in response to the announcement that Canada Goose will be fur-free by the end of 2022:

PETA and its affiliates are suspending their international campaigns against Canada Goose today, after years of eye-catching protests, hard-hitting exposés, celebrity actions, and legal battles, as the company has finally conceded and will stop using fur – sparing sensitive, intelligent, coyotes from being caught and killed in barbaric steel traps. PETA will now re-engage the company to push for an end to its use of feathers, which geese and ducks continue to suffer for.

Morrissey’s letter to Reiss follows.

Dani Reiss, CEO

Canada Goose

Dear Mr. Reiss,

As I tour Canada this spring, I’m writing to urge Canada Goose to act more like its namesake (e.g., smart, brave, and willing to fly off in a new direction) by making the bold ethical choice to remove coyote fur and down feathers from its parkas.

Canada Goose has almost singlehandedly revived the cruel trapping industry, in which animals can suffer for days and try to gnaw off their ensnared limbs before the trapper eventually returns to bludgeon them to death. No hood adornment is worth that. Geese raised for down at Canada Goose’s featured supplier were trampled, suffocated, and crammed into tiny transport cages for a miserable trip to the slaughterhouse before they were hung upside down and their throats were slit so that their feathers can be stuffed into (and poke out of) jackets.

That strip of coyote fur isn’t keeping anyone warm, and there are plenty of superior insulators composed of everything from biodegradable fleece to coconut husks. That’s why other outerwear makers, including For All Kind, Save the Duck, and HoodLamb, have already dispensed with fur and down for their products.

I’d be the first to celebrate a cruelty-free Canada Goose coat by wearing one proudly. Until then, PETA and I will be collecting signatures during my Canadian tour calling for Canada Goose to stop killing animals for coats.

Yours sincerely,

And if the day came when you used an intelligent emoticon
I'd get such a shock I'd probably jump in the ocean
And when a train goes by, it's such a sad sound, no
It's such a sad thing (that you're not on the tracks)


is this supposed to be a poem?doh:

Can’t wait to throw animal fur and beef hot dogs at the fascist Moz on stage in Las Vegas.
