Ok, this stunt doesn’t make any sense to me. PETA in Toronto is giving fur coats to homeless people? Call me stupid but for me PETA always stood for anti-fur, anti-animal abuse. Sure, giving homeless people a warm coat is grand. But even if they got a stock pile of fur coats from those who’ve had a change of heart it smacks of hypocrisy to me. Couldn’t they sell these fur coats to vintage stores & use the proceeds to help the homeless? There has to be a better way to help the homeless than that.
As for the owner of T.O. Leather Fashions Ltd, well Duh! You’re still using the skins of dead animals. Even if it isn’t fur.
