Why Is a Toronto Billboard Shaming Canada Goose CEO on His Birthday? | PETA Canada Goose France

While Canada Goose CEO Celebrates Turning Another Year Older, PETA Draws Attention to the Blood on His Hands

Written by PETA | November 7, 2017

Canada Goose CEO Dani Reiss got a surprise gift from PETA as he celebrated his birthday today: a mobile billboard proclaiming, “CEO Reiss: Happy Birthday? Animals Killed for Canada Goose Have Nothing to Celebrate.” It will run in Toronto in a loop around Canada Goose’s headquarters and the city’s busiest intersection.

PETA’s message to Reiss comes on the heels of a new video exposé, which reveals that workers at a Canada Goose down supplier rounded up terrified geese who piled on top of one another in an attempt to escape, causing suffocation and death. Workers then grabbed and carried birds by their necks and crammed them into cages so small that they couldn’t sit up fully or extend their wings, for a journey to the slaughterhouse that lasted more than five hours. In light of the findings, PETA filed a complaint with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the Canadian Competition Bureau challenging Canada Goose’s claims that its products are “[e]thically sourced” and “humane.”

Reiss oversees a company that makes jackets from coyotes caught in steel traps and geese who are crushed and even suffocated. Many animals abused and killed by Canada Goose never even see their first birthday—it’s time to make the company cruelty-free and give animals something to celebrate.

In addition to tormenting birds for down, Canada Goose also uses fur from coyotes, who can suffer in traps for days before they’re shot or bludgeoned to death. Trapped coyote mothers, desperate to get back to their starving pups, have even been known to attempt to chew off their own limbs to escape.

What You Can Do to Help

You, too, can urge Canada Goose to stop selling down—let the company know that you won’t buy any of its products until it does so. With so many humane, warm materials available today—including Plumtech, PrimaLoft, ThermoBall, and Thinsulate—there’s no excuse for using down. Click the button below to take action:

A380 superjumbo makes emergency landing in Canada–Air France

Paris, France — An Air France A380 superjumbo jetliner taking more than 500 people from Paris to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Canada on Saturday following “serious damage” to one of its four engines, the airline said.

“Flight 066 landed without further damage at the Goose Bay military airport in Canada and all of the 520 people on board were evacuated with no injuries,” an Air France spokesman in Paris told AFP.

The Airbus double-decker, wide body aircraft was re-routed as it passed over Greenland, landing in Goose Bay in eastern Canada at 1542 GMT, the spokesman said.

The landing went off with no problems for the jetliner carrying 496 passengers and 24 crew members, the spokesman said. The airline was exploring options to get the passengers to the United States.

Video and photo images posted on social media, apparently by passengers or their relatives, showed extensive damage to the front of the outer starboard engine, with part of its external cowling stripped away.

The cause of the problem was unknown, with one of the plane’s passengers suggesting that a bird might have collided with the engine which was damaged.

The passenger, Miguel Amador, posted online brief video footage apparently filmed from a window of the plane showing the damaged engine.

“Engine failure halfway over the Atlantic ocean… birdstrike possibility,” he wrote.

A fellow passenger, Iskandar, tweeted that the AF66 passengers “have a memory of their flight which will last a long time”.

Air France operates 10 Airbus A380s, which are the largest passenger planes in the world.

Their version of the craft uses GP7200 engines, a giant turbofan built by General Electric and Pratt and Whitney of the US.

Goose Bay is a base operated by the Royal Canadian Air Force but is also a designated standby airport for diverted transatlantic flights.

Sales of the mammoth A380 have been sluggish and Airbus has said it will reduce production in 2019 to just eight of the superjumbos.

In 2015 the company produced 27 of them.

Nonetheless, Airbus CEO Tom Enders recently voiced confidence in the future of the plane. /cbb
