Majority of Canadians oppose killing animals for fur

Research Co. has found a strong majority of Canadians oppose killing animals for their fur. The results of the poll were released by the Canadian company last week and revealed how a representative sample of residents feel about numerous animal-use issues.

According to a news release, Research Co. found that 75% of Canadians oppose killing animals for their fur. Regionally, the opposition broke down as such:

  • 81% oppose in Ontario;
  • 79% oppose in British Columbia;
  • 75% oppose in Atlantic Canada;
  • 74% oppose in Quebec and Alberta; and,
  • 61% oppose in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

It is important for retailers and our governing bodies to recognize that there are clear environmental and ethical objections to the fur trade in Canada held by a strong majority of residents. It is time to #MakeFurHistory.
