On Tuesday, Ottawa will reportedly announce that Canada's air and naval forces will be officially renamed the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Royal Canadian Navy.
The land command unit will be known as the Canadian Army. The moves will restore the titles that Canada's military forces used until 1968.
The names won't be formally unveiled until Tuesday, but reaction is trickling out from military personnel, politicians and ordinary Canadians both in favour of and against the move.
The CBC online poll is running more than 2:1 in favor of this amazing move by HM Canadian Government. Even the comments are generally pretty positive .
