Senator Plett proudly shows off our petition!

I had the honour of presenting Senator Plett with our 384 page petition last week, so that he could table it with the Senate Standing Committee on National Security and Defence. All smiles for the camera, eh Senator!

For more happiness, you can read Christopher McCreery's letter at Althia Raj's blog, in which he articulates why no further permission is required from the Queen in order to continue the usage of the Royal designation for the Canadian navy. So much for the incorrect assertion from Canadian admirals (I have posted their unfortunate testimonies below) that this would be a difficult thing to accomplish. On the contrary, there would be nothing to it.
