What smells fishy is that you are here blathering away on the topic in complete ignorance, having not even bothered to read CG's policy statement on the subject. What legitimate purpose does that serve? Read up or shut up.

That is probably a good idea Boco. I would not do it in this country but your government is now on board with pot.

Additionally, GOOS, just a couple weeks ago, notified the SEC that the insiders ( officers) will be SELLING 10 million shares. Might be some sort of signal there.

Here is an Economics 101 lesson for the Harvard MBAs at CG. If you want an increased supply, you have to increase the amount you will pay.

What if a person said CG doesn't buy ANY coyotes, and they are all purchased from ruff manufacturers.

There are only a few types of fur that is any use for hood ruffs in frigid conditions,coyote,wolf and wolverine.There is no species ranched that will work for their cold weather parkas for hood ruffs.Fox is likely the worst choice for a hood ruff.Fox tails are used for ruffs but are a poor choice compared to coyote.The guard hairs are just not stiff enough to shed the frost.
If they cant get enough coyotes,they have no chance to get enough wolves let alone wolverine.

Boco, I'd wager the vast majority of the people buying these coats don't have a clue if the ruff sheds frost or not.

You may be right,but CG knows.Their original products were made for the arctic,and that is one of the marketing points they use to sell their current goods to the yuppies.They could use sheared beaver for a hood liner.

I wish they would. With the hatter market it the way it is, if we had a strong shearing market it would be a heck of a time to be a beaver trapper.

Guess I am ignorant too. Peta sues CG,buys stock. Now they want to follow several trappers around,so tell us,what is the purpose and in what fairy tale world with all stars aligned will this do anybody any good? Make everybody conform to Canadian standards? I would tell them to take a hike.

Front and Center, supporting trappers, and the trapping of wild fur.



Directly from their website:



As a function-first company, authenticity is everything to Canada Goose. Since 1957 we have been focused on making the best products of their kind by using the highest quality raw materials and craftsmanship to ensure we deliver a product that performs when and where it’s needed most.

We understand and respect that some people think animal products should never be used in any consumer products, however we do not share that view. We are committed to providing full transparency about how we make our products, including the ethical sourcing and responsible use of animal products.

A COMMITMENT TO TRACEABILITY
Ethically sourced down, fur, wool and shearling are an important part of our story. We believe all animals are entitled to humane treatment in life and death, and are deeply committed to the responsible use and ethical sourcing of all animal materials in our products. We do not condone any willful mistreatment and neglect of animals or acts that maliciously cause undue pain, injury or suffering.

We recently implemented comprehensive traceability programs for both Fur and Down to ensure they are sourced from animals that have not been subjected to any unfair practices, willfull mistreatment or undue harm, and materials are fully traceable throughout the supply chain.

The Canada Goose Down Transparency Standard™ is our commitment to tracking the source of all of our down, from farm to factory. Through a third-party audit program conducted by International Down & Feather Industries, we can certify that our down only comes as a by-product from the poultry industry and has not come from live-plucked or force-fed birds. It also ensures that all down we source adheres to the Five Freedoms policy set out by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and European Convention for the Protection of Animals Kept for Farming Purposes. As of January 2017, all down insulation used to manufacture new Canada Goose products is fully traceable.

The Canada Goose Fur Transparency Standard™ is our commitment to support the ethical, responsible and sustainable sourcing and use of real fur. The first traceability program to cover the wild habitat, it ensures that all fur sourced by Canada Goose is in accordance with the Agreement of International Humane Trapping Standards (AIHTS) in Canada and the Best Managed Practices (BMP) in the United States, and is fully traceable throughout the supply chain. The standard certifies that we never purchase fur from fur farms, never use fur from endangered animals, and only purchase fur from licensed North American trappers strictly regulated by state, provincial and federal standards. As of April 2017, all fur used in new Canada Goose products is fully traceable, and includes country of origin labelling.

DOWN
Why we choose down.
We use down because it’s recognized as the world’s best natural insulator, providing approximately three times the warmth per ounce as synthetic insulators. Each ounce of down has approximately two million fluffy filaments that interlock and overlap to create insulating pockets of air, which is what keeps you warm.

We purchase all of our down from Feather Industries Canada Ltd., a Canadian down-procurement company and it is hypoallergenic, laboratory-tested and exceeds all Canadian and International Cleanliness Standards. Each of our down blends contains some Hutterite down, which is among the most premium and warmest Canadian down available, enabling us to manufacture lighter jackets without sacrificing warmth.

Canada Goose was a founding member of the Down Association of Canada and has been an active participant for the 30 years since. For more information on down and its benefits, visit www.downmark.ca.

FUR
Why we choose fur.
No matter where they’re worn, many of our products are designed and built to protect against the elements in the coldest places on Earth – places where exposed skin can freeze in an instant. In these environments, we believe that fur is the best choice. Having fur trim around a jacket hood disrupts airflow and creates turbulent air which helps protect the face from frostbite.

We only use the best quality fur from the Northwest regions of Canada and the United States, where coyote populations are confirmed to be highly abundant. In fact, in many regions of North America, coyotes are considered a pest as they attack livestock, endangered prey species, pets and sometimes even people. We know that wearing fur is a personal choice and we respect that. In turn, we hope that people will respect our responsible use and ethical sourcing of fur.

WOOL & SHEARLING
Canada Goose is committed to tracking the source of all our wool and shearling from origin to the factory. Through our traceability programs, we can source the wool and shearling back to origin, assuring it came from farms that value animal welfare and do not practice mulesing.

They don't even know where their Canadian coyotes come from. I'll educate them. South central to South western Canada. Of course by aboriginal trappers using traditional methods in order to feed their families.

Yeah they're corporate business men. They don't have the faintest f#####g clue how nature works. They're trying to change that. And they're looking for help from the very people who are benefitting from their efforts. But they're up against weapons grade ignorance.

This is the exact type of self defeating nonsense that made Atlas Shrug.
