Canada Goose to make scrubs, patient gowns in battle against coronavirus
Retailer will begin distributing them to local hospitals free of cost next weekLuxury apparel maker Canada Goose Holdings Inc. said on Wednesday it would begin production of medical gear for healthcare workers and patients in the country to aid the battle against the coronavirus pandemic. The Canadian company said it would make scrubs and patient gowns, which are in short supply, and will begin distributing them to local hospitals free of cost next week. The production will start in two of its plants in Toronto and Winnipeg, with about 50 employees per facility working towards an initial goal of manufacturing 10,000 units. Last month, the retailer had forecast a hit to its annual profit and revenue as the outbreak in China hurt store traffic. The forecast reflects a crisis across global luxury brands that have been investing heavily to launch more stores and beef up online presence to capitalize on the spending power of Chinese shoppers. Canada Goose, which generates about a fifth of its revenue from Asia and sells US$1,000 parkas, operates three stores in China and sells on online marketplace Tmall. © Thomson Reuters 2020 Read more: National Post
👏👏👏 ElizabethMay The wise thing to do Can't wait to see Trudeau dressed in his Canada Goose scrubs while visiting a hospital. ElizabethMay Good way to improve the visual of their goose killing industry Is using your position in gvt to benefit you’re wife’s employer/company not unethical and an illegal COI (conflict of interest)
Do a little more reporting before you praise a cruel company and items not needed ...they need PPE ....these fox coyote killers do not need any help Hey now report on the treatment of animals in their fur farms ...do not support this killer company No one cares they are killers Maybe they can also quit killing foxes and coyotes for good too.....
Oh are they going to stop murdering animals too? Scrubs are not in high demand. Nice try though canadagoose. You think this will make us forget the cruelty you bring to innocent animals boycottCanadaGoose AnimalCruelty
Canada to help world's poor cope with COVID-19, amid UN appeal: aid ministerInternational Development Minister Karina Gould says Canada will spend millions to help the world's most desperate people fight COVID-19 because it is in the country's long-term security interest as well as being the right thing to do. Why? Why are we sending money anywhere but Canadians? We're already pulling almost $100 billion out of thin air, why are we printing more money to send to the third world? Why? Canada has done its part already. We need a 'Canada First' policy. Canada is about to BECOME the World's poor with this.
Scrubs and patient gowns aren't even in demand. Good try with your weak ass pr stunt though cg. Hold this L. Lined with coyote fur? Wow - now THAT is a responsible corporation. Guess what kind of jacket I am going to buy next year? Are they going to be lined with the fur of dead coyotes just like their jackets? 🙄🙄🙄
Keeps you warm during the covid chills and fever! I have this image of scrubs lined with goose down. I hope is free Just a reminder to anyone who doesn’t want to support their cruel and unethical clothing line WuxlyMovement is cruelty-free, Canadian and WARM! ❤️🇨🇦🙌🏻 Thank you! If 3m is not exporting their production due to internal demand this is the best course of action. All other Canadian companies should ask the government how they can help.
As a union employee, I’m not sure how I feel about these minimum wage sweat shop workers making me a scrub. I won’t lie, I feel guilty esp knowing they can’t go to Toilet when they need to and if they are sick they have a hard time. I thank them for their service

levinepmc Awe nice of the Chinese Great, wonderful news! 👍💜👏 canadagoose Is this donation or are they paid per scrub? I'll never buy Canada Goose regardless of whatever publicity they get. The core values of their company are awful. It feels like people only buy it because someone they know has one. There are better, more ethical options out there for the same price.
Oh is it a coincidence that a director of Canada Goose is married to GM Butts gmbutts cndpoli Unfortunately from the recent rumours the Chinese are testing all employees working in the same factory and they are quarantine at the factory. How about N95 face masks for front-line health care workers? Since they can’t sell to the Chinese might as well milk the Canadian government. Must keep gmbutts wife floating in cash.
This is the shit that makes me laugh. Will they be more stylish than the usual fucking clothes. Maybe America doesn't want M4A. In Canada our Health ministry is so incompetent its a challenge to get treated by a Dr who isn't naked. Very cool.

Let's get the data we need to FlattenTheCurve acoyne GlobeDebate Sounds good, but who’s actually driving the initiative or is it just a good idea that we’ll look back with 20 20 vision after this is over and say we should have done that! Has anyone contacted our local business community to see what they can do?
