I see the OPP is getting rid of the American-style cowboy hats and going back to the uniform cap. Seems to me a good thing, to return to the more professional, "official-looking" headgear, but what do I know? I'd be interested, as always, to hear the Bear's views from his side of the badge.

The OPP's version of the American-style hats always seemed to me to have the wrong proportions anyway. The brim seemed too narrow for the height of the crown. And they appeared to be made from some sort of woven plastic, which contributed to the amateurish presence. But, again, what do I know. Maybe officers in the field just loved the things.
