Soutien du doyen Ian Holloway pour Projet Distinction Navale

Aujourd’hui, Projet Distinction Navale est heureux d’annoncer le soutien du doyen de droit à l’Université de Calgary, et ancien combattant de la Marine royale canadienne, l’hon. Ian Holloway:

Le Projet Distinction Navale est une merveilleuse initiative. Pour le Canada, il n’y a pas de navire plus approprié que le NCSM Haida – le navire «le plus belliqueux» de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale — de nommer comme vaisseau amiral de la Marine royale canadienne. Aujourd’hui – plus de soixante-dix ans après les faits – les actions de l’Haida se présentent comme un témoignage de l’esprit et la philosophie de la Marine royale canadienne – un esprit et une philosophie qui restent tout aussi importante aujourd’hui qu’ils étaient alors.

Comme la Royal Navy avec le Victory, la Marine des États-Unis avec le Constitution, Canada150 est le moment idéal pour le Canada de donner une juste appréciation au Haida.

–L’hon. Ian Holloway C.P., D.C., C.R. (Premier maître retraité)
