Peter C. Newman signs the petition!

I did not know that the Canadian writer, journalist and longtime Maclean's editor was also a naval captain in the Canadian Naval Reserves. He is petition signature number 5814, and wrote:

As this petition indicates, usage of the Royal Canadian Navy was never legally removed from the books -- and this was the Navy we joined and swore allegiance to -- and continue to serve.


Now I wonder if he would be willing to write an article in Maclean's magazine?


  1. Actually that might be a great idea. It would bring to attention the fact that Canada has no Navy in the Legal sense of the word, hasnt since 1968. The more high profile people speaking out about this might put the pressure on Mr Peter Macay. Perhaps Good Luck

  2. Hi there, just became alert to your blog through Google, and found that it's truly informative. I'm going to watch out for
    brussels. I'll be grateful if you continue this in future. A lot of people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  4. I drop a leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a article on a website
    or if I have something to contribute to the discussion.
    Usually it's a result of the passion communicated in the post I read. And on this article "Peter C. Newman signs the petition!". I was moved enough to post a leave a responsea response ;-) I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it simply me or do a few of the remarks look like written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at other social sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list every one of your community pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
