Under Pressure From PETA, Toronto's CN Tower Goes Fur-Free
Another famous celebrity has gone fur-free! This time, Toronto’s CN Tower, the tallest free-standing structure in the Americas, is the big winner.
Sure, you don’t think of buildings as drawing the ire of PETA — but it’s what’s inside that matters, and the gift shop at the CN Tower was guilty of selling hats made out of rabbit and raccoon fur. “There’s a world of suffering in every fur hat and piece of fur trim,” says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. “CN Tower is to be commended for keeping the fur on the animals’ backs by taking the fur off its shelves.”
According to a rep for the Tower, the fur hats will be discontinued immediately.
