... The announcement comes 100 years, to the day, after King George granted Royal Consent to call the Naval Service of Canada the Royal Canadian Navy...
In 1968, six years after I joined the RCAF, defence minister Paul Hellyer did away with the single services and "unified" them as the Canadian Forces. Our unit held an emotional wake to mark the event. [Hellyer was a flake then and remains a flake.] It's a wonder it took this long to undo (some of) the damage he did.
A valuable part of our heritage has been restored. It doesn't happen often.
"It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences." -- C. S. Lewis
