The Fur Institute of Canada (FIC) worked in partnership with the Fur Council of Canada (FCC) to have our voice heard in a great story about the RCMP and their need for more muskrat hats written by Alison Crawford. Alan Hercovici from the FCC was interviewed and reiterated the importance of the Fur Trade in Canada and how well regulated it is.
Here are a couple of quotes from the story where Alan was quoted:
“”It’s nice to see that recognition of Canadian heritage. The fur trade is part of Canada’s history, of course, and still makes a lot of sense today because it is a natural, biodegradable, renewable resource,” said Alan Herscovici, speaking for the Fur Council of Canada and website Truth About Fur.”
“”Trappers in Canada have to take training courses to learn how to use the new humane trapping methods before they get their trapping licences, and it is extremely well-regulated by the provincial and territorial wildlife departments,” Herscovici said.”
