Please read & participate....
THIS IS NOT A PHYSICAL DEMO. YOU CAN DO IT FROM YOUR HOUSE, WORK, WHEREVER YOU MAY BE.

It will take you less than one minute! Each call statistically speaks for over 100 people. And you will feel good knowing that you did something for the animals.
Please contact the Bay during business hours (9am to 5pm) on Friday February 26th and let them know that you want them stop selling fur.
Phone numbers: http://www.hbc.com/storelocator/default.asp?langid=EN&src=hbc
(this is for Ontario, but you can find the Bay near you by searching according to your province)
Ask to speak to the store manager.
CALL THE HEAD OFFICE AS WELL: 416-861-4999 ask to speak with Bonnie Brooks (She is the CEO of the Bay)
(Note: it is easier to get through to the right person if you don't lecture the operator/receptionist who answers the phone; just ask to speak with Bonnie Brooks without saying anything about fur. Don't be afraid to give your name, you are not doing anything wrong! And if you get a voicemail: leave a message)

This activism alert is part of two "days of action" that we will be doing every month during the winter. On Friday, February 26th we are asking everyone to email and call the Bay and on Saturday, February 27th we are organizing a day of physical protest (please see the event here:http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=500722875573
The Bay in Toronto has continued its fur sale and has reduced prices from 40 - 60% off: they are having a difficult time selling these coats. The Bay in Burlington is in the same position.
Tell the bay in your own words how you feel about them selling fur.
What do I say?
"Could I please get a complaint logged?... I would like the Bay to know that I do not support their sale of animal fur, and as a customer of the Bay, I would like them to stop selling all animal furs in their stores."
But I'm shy?
This is understandable. No need to speak for hours or to make a speech, just tell them how you feel in your own words
Thanks to wonderful compassionate people like you, we will win!
