I hate Canada Goose Jackets

Made by dickheads in Toronto for dickheads in Toronto.

What the fuck is up with Dog fur-lined hoods.
These abominations are everywhere and they need to stop.

Yes. Coyote to be precise. They claim they are ethical, what a load of bullshit.

If I hoarded a bunch of feral cats in my neighbourhood and made coats out of them I would be evil. I would like to know how this is ethical?

The geese on the front lawn at my office actually chase you, even if you are 50 feet away on the other side of the road. Those fuckers are FAST too. You better move your ass if you see one coming!

lol, once my dad's coworker ended up having to toss his laptop bag at a goose that attacked him in the parking lot. I've never been actually chased, but they're not terribly happy when you feed the overly friendly domesticated ducks and not them! My Canadian professor said those geese gave her a bad name

That is majorly wrong. I'm not really the crazy paint slinging type, but if I saw someone wearing DOG I'd be tempted ...

I am against the paint thing. I draw the line at assault. Verbal assault is a totally different story.

The Coyotes Canada Goose uses are murdered. They provide a long winded, vain justification on their website. The call it an "environmental" policy. It is funny how they fail to mention the toxic chemicals that are used to keep the carcass from rotting.

Quote:
Environmental Policy
Canada Goose Policy on the Humane Treatment of Animals

Canada Goose is deeply committed to the preservation of our global environment and the
humane treatment of animals. As an authentically Canadian company, the environment
and ethical treatment of animals are central to our values. We consistently make
commitments based on these values that guide the ways in which we do business. We
recognize that because we use animal products in our garments, questions may arise
regarding these commitments and our practices. It is important to us that our position on
these matters, as well as the reasons for and nature of our company’s use of animal
products are made widely available.

Since we have been producing Canada Goose products, we have used both Coyote fur in
the manufacture of our parkas and jackets. From the beginning we have closely
examined and considered the use of these products from both an ethical and
conservationist perspective. We are firm in our belief that these ethics are sound.

We use Coyote fur only as absolutely necessary, and exclusively for functional purposes.
Our jackets are--and always have been--used in the coldest places on earth. In such
climates, where skin can freeze in an instant, the coyote fur creates a warm environment
in the most critical area--around the face. The warm pocket of air keeps exposed skin
warm and ensures that exhaled air does not freeze. It is for precisely this reason that the
technologies of centuries past used fur for protection against the extreme cold. Today
we are able to use as little fur as possible, while maintaining the critical functionality of
this sort of product.

The fur that we do use is acquired in the most humane ways and we adhere to the
guidelines of the Fur Council of Canada that governs fur use in our country.

The fur industry is an excellent example of an industry based on sustainable use.
All the furs used by the trade are abundant. Absolutely no endangered species
are used. In the Canadian fur trade, government wildlife officials and biologists
ensure responsible use by establishing controlled hunting and trapping, harvest
quotas, licensing, and training courses. Strict government regulations ensure that
these quotas and seasons are respected.

Canada Goose strictly adheres to all such industry and government guidelines. More
importantly, we take pride in the fact that by supporting this sustainable industry we are
also supporting the native Canadian communities of the North and their centuries-old
ways of life that are now being threatened. These communities are ethical in their
fundamental approach to hunting: We strongly identify with the value systems of these
communities, and make a commitment that carries over to the way we do business:
Canada Goose does not buy fur from farms of any sort – ever.

The environmental benefits to using a natural product are clear when compared with the
use of synthetics that are sometimes described as an “ethical” alternative to real fur.
Many anti-fur advocacy groups fail to take into account the environmental impact of the
production of synthetic fur. The chemical by-products of this production process have the
potential to do more harm to the environment than the use of the fur from animals that are
hunted as part of an ancient way of life that balances the needs of people and wildlife.

There are never simplistic solutions for complex problems. We are proud of the
principled, responsible and humane approach that we consistently take in making our
products. Nonetheless we recognize that there are some who oppose the use of animal
fur under any circumstances. In stating our views and practices, we hope to promote the
kind of transparency and context that will inform a reasoned discussion, one that moves
beyond the shrill finger-pointing that often characterizes both sides of the debate. Good
corporate citizenship requires openness and a willingness to listen to all sides on the
issues that affect us all.

When my son was 2 or 3 he was dive bombed by a goose at the zoo. It was funny because no one got hurt. Also, the turkeys chased us down once. Birds suck.

I know I've asked this question a thousand times but can some one please tell me what in the hell is the difference in fur vs. feathers vs. the freaking skin of an animal??? It just seems so hypocritical to me to be so against killing animals for fur but it's ok to pluck a goose to stuff inside a coat or skin a cow to make a belt.

^I'm pretty sure brody wants everyone who eats meat and wears leather to die as well, so at least he's consistent.

I think it's the type of animal that makes it so objectionable to most people. Dogs are canis familiaris...as in meant to be family. Most people I know don't have pet cows and I sure as hell wouldn't want a pet Canada goose, lest it stalk me down and eat me first!

I agree, unless its how you substain, I don't see why you can't do synthetic, but of course thats just my opinion

There is no difference to me. It is all cruel and gross.
The reason why most people are against fur is that there is absolutely no justifiable reason to wear/ use it. People who respect animals do not expect people to stop using animal products all together, it would be awesome, but it is not realistic. Fur is the starting point. It is the one thing I ask of people, please do not wear fur. It is vile and sad. Anything else you consider after that is just gravy.
