The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF)—one of the largest publicly attended film festivals in the world—continues to accept Canada Goose's sponsorship money, even though TIFF leadership knows that the company uses fur from wild coyotes who are caught in painful steel traps and down from birds who are violently slaughtered.
Coyotes are caught in steel traps so that Canada Goose can use their fur to trim its jackets. They can suffer for days with broken bones and wounds before trappers return to bludgeon or shoot them to death. Mothers desperate to get back to their pups have even been known to try to chew off their legs. And birds used for their down are inevitably sent to the slaughterhouse, where standard practice is to hang them upside down, stun them, and then slit their throats—often while they're still conscious.
After hearing from PETA about the way coyotes whose fur is used on Canada Goose jackets are violently killed, the Berlin International Film Festival confirmed that it had cut ties with the company in 2017. Please help coyotes and birds by urging TIFF to end its partnership with Canada Goose as long as it continues to use real fur and down.
