Decision by Mounties to abandon fur hats to be ‘fully overturned,’ Aglukkaq says

A decision by the RCMP to use wool tuques instead of fur-lined hats in cold winter months will be “fully overturned,” Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq says.

“I would like to assure Canadians that the Minister of Public Safety has taken actions to ensure that the historic fur winter hats worn by the RCMP will not be discontinued, despite the efforts of radical animal rights activists,” Aglukkaq said during Question Period on Tuesday. “The RCMP decision, which is causing much glee among anti-fur activists, is being fully overturned.”
