TORONTO, March 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Canada Goose, one of the world's leading
manufacturers of extreme weather outerwear today welcomed the tabling
of new anti-counterfeit measures in the Parliament of Canada.
"Canadians have long been victims to the illicit counterfeit trade and
the new measures announced today should be welcome news for consumers,
businesses and retailers alike," said Kevin Spreekmeester, Vice
President of Global Marketing at Canada Goose and Co-Chair of the
Canadian Intellectual Property Council. "The strengthened border
measures will play a vital role in protecting jobs for Canadian
manufacturers, as well as unsuspecting consumers looking for bargains
from those that would do them harm."
