According to CBC News, Canada's armed forces will once again be called the Canadian Army. Noting that "[it's] important to correct historic mistakes," the Conservative government has reinstated the designation Royal, a term which had been lost in 1968 when all of the armed services were renamed and placed under one central command.
From the article:
Defence Minister Peter MacKay said Tuesday his government has corrected a historic mistake by restoring the "royal" designation to the air force and navy, a move he says will come at a minimal cost.
At an event in Halifax, MacKay announced the Maritime Command and Air Command will again be known as the Royal Canadian Navy and Royal Canadian Air Force -- names that haven't been used in more than four decades. The army, formally known as the Land Force Command, will be renamed the Canadian Army.
The royal designation was removed from the navy and air force in 1968 when the branches were renamed and brought under one central command named the Canadian Forces.
