Mr. Pappas estimates that the fur trade in British Col- umbia contributes million annually to the province's economy, with the volume of furs coming to his warehouse from other provinces, the Yukon and the United States steadily increasing. Fur prices are on the in- crease because of the popular- ity of fur coats for both men and women, he said.
