Morrissey Enlists Fans to Target Canada Goose During Upcoming Tour - Vents Magazine
RJ Frometa

As singer Morrissey embarks on a Canadian tour this spring, he has a message for Canada Goose CEO Dani Reiss: “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.”

PETA will join the singer on the road to collect petition signatures from fans under a large banner featuring a howling coyote and the words “We’re With Morrissey: Canada Goose, Ditch the Fur and Feathers.” The petition will be delivered to Reiss at the end of the tour.

A wide variety of top brands—including HoodLamb, NOIZE, Save the Duck, For All Kind, and Wuxly Movement—sell warm, stylish vegan coats that no animal suffered and died for.

Morrissey’s letter to Reiss follows.

April 11, 2019

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. And geese are confined to cramped cages and trucked hundreds of miles to slaughter in all weather conditions before they’re hung upside down and their throats are slit—often while they’re still conscious—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,
Morrissey

For the 100th time. "Where are we touring? Can we sell more tickets? Ok, we'll do what we've always done..."

However plain wrong, mendacious and unteachable Peta may be, this is yet another attempt to make money off the back of well-meaning people. There is one objective here, and only one objective - money, and it is shameful he keeps doing this, and equally shameful that there are legions of gullible 'fans' who will applaud this. Sit back and watch the 'won't someone think of the animals?" posts. You've all been played. Again.

Name in news. Sell more tickets. Money, money, money.

A money-grabbing bigot. You're all welcome to him.

You gullible fools.
Happy 100th Anniversary there Skinny!

I must admit his allegiance to Peta has never impressed me. I think he's better making a point on his own.
 
Just read that the Company is 2 years older than Morrissey (yes that young) and what a contrast they’ve made in the world of animals. Keep up the good work Morrissey. Set the goose loose!!

Gotta do more than 1 show for a ...what was it ?... a "tour" ? Of what ? An ice berg ? An igloo ?....A goose nest ? With the way the ol'boy keeps cancelling and rescheduling dates, you'll be lucky with 2 shows !

Nothin tastier than a slow roasted goose with onions, taters, carrots, truffles and a nice red wine reducton sauce. We like it with sage dressing and a fine merlot.
Simply delish !

IN Poland, geese as made into soup and feathers made into hats. The wolves are turned into coats, hats and the scraps are sold as loin cloths to the congo.
