PETA supporters armed with letter boards spelling out the message “Canada Goose Kills” are expected to gather outside the CF Pacific Centre Friday evening to protest the opening of a new Canada Goose store.

PETA’s spirited campaign against the retailer spans the U.S., Canada, and other countries around the world.

“Every Canada Goose coat represents the suffering of coyotes who were caught in painful steel traps and geese whose throats were slit,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman.

“PETA is calling on Vancouver consumers to refuse to give a dime to this cruel company until it stops tormenting and killing animals for its coats.”

The protest is being held at The CF Pacific Centre, 701 W. Georgia St. (at the intersection with Howe Street), on Friday, November 2, at 5:30 p.m.
