No, my account has it listed as "maximum order has been reached" and I ordered the hat in 2011.  I think it's a one time go, or at least they have a service life for the hat in mind.  Maybe in 5 years it might be good to go.   :dunno:

Nope, they come from "Muskrat Love".

And they whirl and they twirl
And they tango
Singing and jinging a jango
Floating like the heavens above
Looks like muskrat love

DEU IAW CF Dress Instructions and local dress reg's.  Logistik Unicorps.  And I am sure 'someone' in your CofC knows the dress regs.  If not, hell just wear it in CADPAT next time but make sure you walk past the RSM a few times.  Even better do it at the slow march.

I'm sure a few things will be explained to you at that point.   >:D

Very spiffy with welding goggles, snorkel, black cape, red Speedo (remember - the potato goes in the front, not in the back), and rubber boots.

I'm still waiting for the opportunity to present itself to wear mine with "trousers, DEU, size to small/floodies" and "sweater, Blue, bodyhugging, 2 sizes to small".  Of course, my "boots, black, Austin Powers" would complete the outfit.   

Now there is a pic for those "how to wear your orders of dress" posters around the CAF....

I bet 99% of these people who campaign for `don`t hurt the butterflies`campaigns walk right past homeless people on the streets with their latte`s and apple fritters.

So now the Mounties are changing their minds, sort of:

Don't worry.  I am sure there is some Minister and an Old Boys network that will bring in the wearing of some fancy pin made in China to celebrate something or other.

Damn, I would laugh my *** off to see them saddled with some of the stupid pins they make us wear.

It's a dark day in the history of the force.

Fortunately, nobody wastes their time trying to stomp out dress idosyncrasies. If you have a piece of functional kit that was last issued ten or fifteen years ago, nobody cares if you continue to wear it. It's not easy to find two mounties who are dressed exactly alike outside of Depot, so anyone who already has their fur hat is good to go.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

The government has ordered the RCMP to continue using the fur hat.

Apparently, the fur industry needs the RCMP sales to stay in business.  Guess that means our new hat will probably also hang around for a while still.

Here's Tuesday's Q&A in the House:
Quote
Mr. Robert Sopuck (Dauphin—Swan River—Marquette, CPC):  Mr. Speaker, recently the RCMP announced that it had decided to discontinue its use of the iconic muskrat hat. This unilateral move by the RCMP has outraged the fur industry, rural and remote communities, and thousands of trappers.  The fur trade is vital to the economy of many remote rural communities, communities that often have few other economic options.  Radical animal rights activists have as their goal the complete elimination of the fur trade. Will the Minister of the Environment tell the House what the government intends to do about this egregious anti-fur decision by the RCMP?

Hon. Leona Aglukkaq (Minister of the Environment, Minister of the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency and Minister for the Arctic Council, CPC):  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague, the member for Dauphin—Swan River—Marquette, for the question.  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. The RCMP decision, which is causing much glee among anti-fur activists, is being fully overturned.  Our government will always stand up for Canada's hunters and trappers.
Apparently, the fur industry needs the RCMP sales to stay in business.
Not suprisingly, this, from the fur producers' info-machine:  "Fur Institute of Canada Applauds Government's Support of Canadian Trappers".

Working on the Site C review I got to speak to a bunch of the trappers who go after muskrat, they are already suffering from a major drop in supply due to changes in the PAD, a loss of a large domestic market would hit a lot of these very rural people that live near the economic margins.
