Typically pathetic HypoGrit attitude towards our armed forces we've seen & heard for decades.
"In our military, it is often tradition and a sense of place in history that sustains us, especially when life is under threat,"
Retired colonel Chris Hadfield, best known as the first Canadian to walk in space

Seems the majority of those reponsing to CBC's polls approve of the renaming:
Yes, they’re a nice reminder of our military history and connection to the monarchy. 52.92% (10,360 votes)
No, they’re outdated terms and a step in the wrong direction. 45.11% (8,831 votes)
I don’t know. 1.96% (384 votes)
Total Votes: 19,575

Just more proof the HypoGrits are still way out of touch with the mood of the nation. Angry, old white men getting grumpy for grumpy sake.
