- Minister of National Defence
Prior to Unification in 1968, Canada's Army officers wore the traditional "pips and crowns" for ranks from second lieutenant to general.
Upon Unification, the Army (or Mobile Command as it became known) wore generic bars, the same as the Navy and Air Force.
Given that the Government has again granted the three elements of the Canadian Forces (Royal Canadian Navy, Canadian Army, and Royal Canadian Air Force) a certain distinction from each other, and given also that the RCN now has its distinct officer rank (with the executive curl), it is respectfully requested that a return to the distinct Canadian Army officer ranks of "pips and crowns" be granted.
The Reinstate "pips and crowns" for Canadian Army officers petition to Minister of National Defence was written by Albert Head and is in the category Military at GoPetition.
