The popularity of Canada Goose jackets on campus resulted in an anti-fur demonstration on Tuesday afternoon.
The Kingston Animal Trust, a local animal rights advocacy group, staged the protest outside the JDUC.
Participants gave out pamphlets with information about the trapping and killing of animals in Canada.
"The major thing is Canada Goose jackets -- it is so present on campus. Everyone has one. That was the reason we started is because of this renewed interest in fur coats," Eric Simpson, member of the Kingston Animal Trust, said.
