Local protestors rally against Canada Goose apparel

Canada Goose jackets have become wildly popular in terms of winter apparel — but not everyone thinks they are morally correct.

The Kitchener Ontario Animal Liberation Alliance (KOALA) rallied in front of Channer’s Men’s Apparel in uptown Waterloo on Saturday to raise awareness about animal abuse and to protest the sale of Canada Goose jackets. KOALA speaks openly about the alleged abuse of Canadian wildlife in the manufacturing of the popular winter apparel.

Canada Goose, a Canadian outdoor clothing company, uses real coyote fur as trim on the hoods of their popular parkas.

“We’ve done protests against fur farms in the area here and we’ve protested at Channer’s a few times,” shared Malcolm Klimowicz from KOALA. “We had a lot of good responses from the public.”

According to Klimowicz, Canada Goose uses leg-hold traps to capture coyotes — a practice that is only permitted by licensed trappers.

“The animals get stuck there and they could be out there for weeks sometimes,” Klimowicz said. “They will chew off their own legs, they will freeze or starve to death; they could be eaten by other animals. They also don’t only catch coyotes; they catch companion animals, like cats and dogs.”

“When they do catch them they are often beaten to death so that they don’t ruin the pelt,” Klimowicz explained.
Bill Townsend of Channer’s Apparel spoke with The Cord in an interview and said that the store did not experience any problems with KOALA’s protest. “They stand outside and chant about not buying fur … most of our customers don’t put much weight into what they are saying,” Townsend shared.

Townsend also believes that Canada Goose obtains their fur in a humane fashion.

“The fur trim on the coats is an integral part of what they do and it is acquired in a humane fashion if you can call it that,” said Townsend. “This is done through a managed process and the fur is just a result of that process. Canada Goose utilizes the fur and makes the product.”

Despite the efforts of the protesters, Townsend also did not foresee any change in Channer’s sale of Canada Goose products.

“Canada Goose is a huge part of our business,” Townsend added. “There is a commerce attached to the fur trade and there is a trickle down. This fur trade is providing jobs for people and it is creating commerce.”

Jack Kinch, executive director at the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society, explained that the commercial use of animal by-products, including the use of fur, is not considered to be animal abuse under the rules and legislation of Canada, the province of Ontario and the Waterloo Region.

“We’re against using animals for testing and that sort of thing, but we also recognize that there are industries that rely on animals for their products,” Kinch said.

KOALA recognizes the legislation that allows for the commercial use of animal by-products.

However, they advocate for the liberation of all animals and do not agree with any ethical argument regarding the use of fur for the clothing industry.

“The majority of people who wear these things live in southern Ontario where it’s really not that cold,” Klimowicz said. “I think the point is that having fur trim is really not necessary on a jacket.”

    Why are they against animal testing? Why would a fur and goose feather manufacturer be against animal testing? Because thwy recognize that animals feel pain and are being tortured but its ok to almost cut off their leg then skim them alive hypocrites. Selfish blood thirsty greedy bastards. People are so blinded by societies acceptance of something so unnrcessary and disturbing

  2. Bethany Johannsen Goluboff says:

    Canada Goose and their real coyote fur decorative trim is obscene. I boycott any store that sells Canada Goose. I live in the GTA and the only people who wear Canada Goose coats here are yuppies who don’t know what to do with their money. They don’t need down jackets, let alone real fur. And the fur trim on these coats serve no purpose than as a decoration. It is offensive. I checked out the new SAIL store that opened up in my area a couple of years ago. I immediately walked out, after seeing the largest inventory of Canada Goose jackets I had ever seen. It turned my stomach. I have never been back to that store.

  3. Shawn Campbell says:

    I live in southern Ontario, Ottawa to be specific , and let me tell you its cold as hell most of the time in winter and the fur really helps.

  4. John Davidson says:

    If it wasn’t for the fur trade in Canada and the rest of the world along with the fact that our ancestors needed this trade to live and keep warm we would not be here today. They would have froze to death.
    Coyote and wolves are predators and need to be kept in check. It is obvious that these protesters have never lived in the far north and I don’t mean Parry Sound. I lived in Northern Ontario for a decade and
    saw domesticated animals maimed and devoured by wolves, coyotes, cougars and bears. Leg-hold traps are banned in some areas and lawful trappers cannot use them where banned. There are bounties on coyotes in some areas as well due to their devastation of poultry and small animals. There are more than enough coyotes to serve the industry. We are not wiping them out. They are not endangered. Nor are geese from which the down is recovered. Eider down is recovered from living geese that go on living happy lives until they die of natural causes. Try and tell those people in Toronto, who have been attacked by coyotes, that they should be left alone. Try and tell my friend in the north who lost his thumb and first finger to a wolf that they are wonderful as well. For those who comment against this use of animal by products I hope that you don’t wear leather shoes or carry a leather wallet. You likely don’t eat anything that has eyes either. Please educate yourself before making comments about things you know nothing about.

    Incidentally…..in enlarging the lead-in photo for this article I could not help seeing that several of the protesters are wearing leather shoes. I suppose that the leather did not come from an animal. Hypocrites!

Adaptation

How has the Canadian goose adapted to its environment and habitat?

Unfortunately, the Canadian goose is known by most as the easiest bird to call and decoy. This makes it very easy to hunt and catch these birds. However; the geese are found in flocks at all times of the year except when nesting. This can make it difficult for predators other than humans to capture their prey. Canadian geese also have very good eyesight and hearing. Sight is the bird's dominant sense. Compared to a mammal's eyes, they are comparatively immobile; however, birds are able to rotate their heads greater distances. Birds are also able to focus their eyes very quickly which is essential during flying. They have a large field of sharp vision.
    During breeding, the geese separate and guard their nests. If they feel threatened, they will chase the predator and flap its wings as a weapon. As a scare tactic, they will open their wings as wide as possible to appear bigger and more daunting.

How do they move?
Photo of Canadian goose flying taken by Alan D. WilsonThe Canadian geese can be found either on land, in the water, or in the air. On land, the geese move via waddling, a very silly type of walk with their webbed feet. In water, these webbed feet come in handy. The duck uses its feet to paddle through water by providing more area to thrust. In the air, the geese use the recognizable V formation or diagonally straight lines. These formations minimize drag on the individuals and gives the flock a streamlined shape. The feathers of geese have many advantages. They allow flight and are much better insulators than mammalian hair. Feathers are made of keratin. Once they are fully grown, they are completely dead tissue; however, feathers are replaced annually.

 

How do their structures relate to their function?

Photo of Canadian goose head taken by Alan D. Wilson    Along with the webbed feet and wings, Branta canadensis also have a bill that is very useful. The bill has serrated edges that are used to strain water. The front of the beak is used to cut strips of kernels and clip grasses with the use of lamellae- ridges that are used as a cutting tool. The tongue of Canadian geese are also useful. They are sensitive with small spiny projections on them which are used for sifting through food. Canadian geese also have long necks that allow the bird to tip over in water and search for food.
    The skeleton of birds is modified for flight. It is light and is very powerful which is necessary for flight. Muscles are in the center of the body in places such as the breast, and bases of the wings and legs. The bones of the bird's skeleton are hollow and several are fused together in order to have a strong, light frame. The skeleton makes up only five percent of the bird's mass!
    Because birds lack a diaphragm, they have evolved air sacs surrounding their lungs. Respiration is much more efficient in birds than in mammals. They can use approximately twenty fiver percent more oxygen from each breath versus a mammal. Birds, like mammals, generate their own heat.
