  1. Tiny baby steps they then turn into major talking point accomplishments. Guaranteed that by 2015, Canada Post, if it still exists, will be called The Post Office Department of the Government of Canada again.

  2. I’m not upset about the Canadian Forces name change even though I would support either a Canadian republic or a home grown Canadian monarchy. In general I believe that Canada isn’t a colony and we should be clear in putting forward the idea that Canadians are in charge of Canada instead of the British or Americans but (except to a few traditionalists), “Royal” is just a word. Just like Charles, Harry, etc are just people.
