Canada's Naval Aviator Veterans

I received a message from Paul Baiden, the President of the Canadian Naval Air Group this morning, who may, I repeat may, be in a position to let us know as early as this week:

Good Morning Michael,

I thank you for this latest update, which I will present to the
executive of the HGVC, of CNAG, this coming Wed, along with the current results of my survey of the other Chapters and former Naval Aviators.

The festive season has made it difficult to contact many of our members, however, I hope we will be able to provide you with our final position at that time.

Yours in Naval Air,

  1. What, pray tell, is behind the resistance to restoring "RCN" to Canads's Navy?
    Will "HMCS" before naval ship's names be the next to go?
    It is a mystery to me. Is this a political game to embarase the Government of Canada?
    "Bigger Fish to fry", what does that mean?
    Why the gagging order ?
    What is this really about?
