Hats off to this government and prime minister for once again prominently displaying the Royal Arms of Canada. Previous governments would have merely festooned the place with national flags, whether the Queen was present or not. Harper's restorative incrementalism is once again on full display.
(By the way, even though the Royal designation has not formally been restored to the Navy yet, notice how ministers seem to use every opportunity to say Royal Canadian Navy. I sense that the government feels that a simple proclamation from the Queen is not sufficient, that the motion currently before the Senate needs to proceed first.)
