PETA slams Trudeau family Christmas card

MP's family photographed wearing coyote fur

PETA is taking Liberal MP Justin Trudeau to task over his annual Christmas card, in which he and his family are decked out in coyote fur. The card features Trudeau, his wife, Sophie Grégoire and his two children wearing fur parkas and smiling under a fur blanket. PETA has called the card “lurid.” Says Lucas Soloway, a member of PETA and co-president of the Concordia University Animal Rights Association: “I was shocked and upset to see it. I think it was disturbing, especially at this time of year in a greeting card. Where is the cheer in wearing the skins of animals?”
