For decades, The Fur-Bearers asked the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to find an alternative to their traditional muskrat fur hats. And in 2014, victory was finally achieved.
The RCMP announced in a letter to The Fur-Bearers that an alternative was found to the muskrat fur for use in regular cold weather conditions. Though the Conservative government attempted to subvert this move by the RCMP, it remains in effect: officers will be issued toques, not fur hats.
This success was possible because of you, our wonderful members and supporters. Thank you from all of us at The Fur-Bearers - and all the muskrats who are in their wild homes!
