That wonderful day in the Canadian Senate

The Senate of course has done its job, and did it marvelously, and here are the official transcripts of that very good day we had in the hearings on November 29, 2010 considering Sen. Rompkey's motion to officially change the name of Martime Command to Canadian Navy. Professor Ian Holloway was the witness on that day and did a superb job pushing for the elegance of "Royal" Canadian Navy.

  1. The acronym 'CN' is also the internet domain name of the People's Republic of China. 'RCN' is distinctively Canadian and 'CN' is distinctively Chinese. 'CN' does not honour Canadian military achievements enough.
