CPC pays homage to yet another anachronism…
… by putting “Royal” back in the names of the Navy and the Air Force.
Loving anachronisms – it’s the CPC way…
This move is just plain bone-headed on so many levels! Even some Cons that I know are scratching their heads a bit over this one! Some traditionalists are saying: “Hooray! We’re going back to the days before that mean PM Trudeau combined the Forces together!”. To them I say – welcome to the 21st century! Here is a calendar!
Look, I don’t pretend to know what those in the Forces think about this. But I don’t “get” why adding “Royal” in front of the “Canadian Air Force” and the “Navy” would matter one way or the other to them. Aren’t they more concerned about having up-to-date equipment in the field and fair pensions and health care in their post-military years?
Hey! Maybe under King Harper we can be the once again the sacrificial lambs that we once were for the British Empire. Doesn’t anyone remember World War I? Or Dieppe?
What’s next? Here are some ideas.
- Regressive Cons rename Ontario Upper Canada
- Ottawa is removed as the National Capital. Instead, an on-line contest is held – sponsored by Tim Horton’s. Canmore, Alberta wins.
- God Save the Queen replaces O Canada.
- The Red Ensign returns
- Public servants have to take an Oath of Loyalty to the Queen… oh wait – we already do that….
