What this 11-year-old thinks about trapping

Jasmine Polsinelli is at it again. You may remember her for being theyoungest lifetime memberof APFA, ever. At eleven years old, she's already a seasoned activist, never afraid to confront the industries responsible for animal suffering. Earlier this year, Jasmine headed toCanada Goose Inc.'s headquarters to meet CEO Dani Reiss. Her hope was to "go in and talk to Dani and maybe give him alternatives that he could use instead of fur.” Instead of Dani, Jasmine was met by Canada Goose security, who blocked her as she tried to enter the main office. APFA organizers called Canada Goose several times to let them know Jasmine was waiting outside. According to one event organizer, “they didn’t seem interested in sending anyone out to meet her. So we took photos and video instead.” One of the photos, which shows Jasmine holding a coyote trap with security and police in the background, went viral, with hundreds of thousands of people watching closely as Mr. Reiss revealed his legitimate fear of answering questions posed by such an intelligent and compassionate young person.

Unfortunately, it's that time of year again. And Jasmine has a message for all Canadians as they start to bundle up for the winter: choose fur-free. As always, her compassion and dedication to this issue astounds us. We love you, Jasmine. After you watch this video, you'll love her too.
