Good news from Canada

The Mounties will be keeping their fur-lined winter hats (H/T: Captain Heinrichs).

Wait a minute. I never saw Dudley Dooright wear a fur hat.

The back story is (and remember hunting is a common thing in Canada):

1. PETA types pressured the RCMP to get rid of them.
2. The Canadian hunters' associations pressured the government.
3. The government told the RCMP to not buckle. It would be bad for a Canadian tradition, hunters and the fur trade.

For once, a good Federal government inaction, as it were.

"The government should stop interfering in the matter of RCMP uniforms."
