Praise Company for No Longer Selling Fur

Target: Michael B. Medline, CEO of Canadian Tire

Goal: Thank Canadian Tire for no longer selling fur.

Canadian Tire is a major company that owns many subsidiaries including Mark’s, Sport Chek, National Sports, and Pro Hockey Life, and it just made the groundbreaking decision to go fur free. Canadian Tire owns about 1,100 stores across Canada, and this decision will spare thousands of animals from unnecessary pain and death.

Fur comes from the bodies of tortured animals. Animals held on fur farms are typically kept in small, dirty cages where they have limited access to food and water. The animals live short, miserable lives and are then crudely killed in whatever way is most convenient. Common ways these animals are killed include strangulation, poisoning, neck-breaking, suffocation and anal electrocution.

Sign this petition and thank Canadian Tire for making the decision to go fur free. It is great to see more and more people coming together in the fight against fur.


Dear Mr. Medline,

Recently, Canadian Tire made the groundbreaking decision to no longer sell fur at any of the company’s stores or online. This decision will spare thousands of animals from unnecessary pain and death.

As you know, animals held on fur farms live short, miserable lives that end in a crude death. It is a life no animal should be subjected to. No animal should die for an article of clothing, and it is clear that you agree.

Thank you for speaking up for those that cannot speak for themselves. I can only hope more companies follow in your footsteps and end their support of the cruel fur industry.

  1. No queremos más crueldad en el mundo, alto al uso de pieles; no lana, no angora, no plumas, no piel en la terrible industra de la moda. Alto al crimen!!!

  2. Better ban oil products also as it can damage an ecosystem, enviroment as well.

  3. Bad decision, majority of their customers are trappers hunters and fishemen…… lets wait and see..

  4. Michael B Medline CEO of Canadian Tire:

    Canadian Tire you just made a major faux pas!
    The decision of 1, 100 stores to go fur free may cost you much more than you expect.
    Your company wears the name a country that was founded by the fur industry. Many of your customers are trappers hunters, fishermen and outdoorsman who supported Canadian Tire for most of their lives but now we are questioning the reason for taking this position.
    How can you sell, leather (animal hide) boots /belts, guns, bullets, fish hooks and support animal rights groups? Will you succumb to environment groups now, banning products such as tires, oils etc? After all the environment must be saved. Might as well shut your doors.
    Canadian Tire will not support trappers, hunters, fishermen and outdoorsman, well trappers hunters, fishermen and outdoorsmen will no longer support Canadian Tire!

  5. Diane Bonenfant says:

    I, for one, will be glad to shop at Canadian Tire stores knowing that the company has eliminated fur products. Compassion for the voiceless gives me peace of mind, a sense of joy and further incentive to shop there.

  6. Dave Johnson says:

    You may want to read the real news. Its not across the nation, affecting 1,100 stores.
    2 banners – Sportchek and Atmosphere are moving away from selling fur products as its what customers are asking for.
    Talk about “Fake News!”.
    More like 11 stores around Toronto.
    FGL Sports and Canadian Tire have yet to make an official statement for fear of PETA accusing them of caving in to pressure from trappers, hunters and recreational anglers.

  7. So they aren’t going to sell leather either? No hockey pads, work boots, shoes, gloves, etc?
