Lauzon Presents Bill to Reintroduce Executive Curl to Navy Uniform

Lauzon Presents Bill to Reintroduce Executive Curl to Navy Uniform

Ottawa March 5, 2010 - OTTAWA - Today, Guy Lauzon, MP for
Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry, introduced and spoke to his Private Members
Motion in the House of Commons to reintroduce the Navy Executive Curl to the
maritime command uniforms of the Canadian Forces. This motion comes as the
Navy is preparing to celebrate its 100th anniversary.

"The loss of the executive curl on navy uniforms was a huge hit to morale
back in the 1960s. This is one of the reasons why I want to give back part
of the navy's pride and traditions which were lost with amalgamation in
1968", said MP Lauzon.

"Today, Canada's navy is the only blue-water force in the world that does


not incorporate some form of executive curl, national emblem, or a nautical


icon", Lauzon continued.


"I hope that this motion will gain support from all parties in the House,"
he concluded. "To some people, this motion seems very simple and
unimportant. But to many historians, military enthusiasts, and our veterans,
it is just a small token to show our respect and appreciation."
