Winnipeg White Ensign Naval Club votes a resounding "YEA" to Royal Canadian Navy!

This message from George Apps, their President, to the Executive Secretary of the Royal Canadian Naval Association, Jerry Sigrist:

Jerry,

At our meeting last night the vote to have "ROYAL" returned to the Canadian Navy was a resounding "YEA".

I have also had emails and phone calls from members that could not attend the meeting saying Yes, lets get ROYAL back.

By the way - I brought up this subject about a year ago and it was suggested that I "forget" it. Suppose that now the Air Force want it back things are different. As the Air Force usually get what they want, expect the word Royal will soon be back

Trust all is well with you Hope you didn't suffer too much from the recent storms.

Cheers
George

We know the air force is not driving this - the Senate of Canada is, along with our veteran's campaign which is attempting to give equal respect to both services, even though the Senate concentrated on the navy alone. The reason: Senator Rompkey's motion was timed to coincide with the Canadian Naval Centennial (now past), which is why it is now appropriate to do it for both services, not just the navy.

  6. Hi there! My name is Aisha and I really just desired to say your website rocks!
    It's surprising because I use to have a blog site that nearly had an identical website url: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=7328650912798444753&postID=9049845538504657770 mine was only a few characters different. In any case, I'm a big supporter of your website and if you at any
    time would like a guest article please email me personally at:
    terabarth@gmail.com. I take pleasure in writing!

  7. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot
    of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being ripped off? I'd definitely appreciate it.

  8. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had
    to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too
    cool!

  13. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.
