What's In a Name?

The Harper regime has decided to stick it to the Americans.  Canada's two new support ships are to be  named Queenston and Chateauguay to commemorate battles in which British forces and Canadian militia inflicted defeats on American invaders during the War of 1812.

I suppose Steve could have named them after more contemporary Canadian victories such as Vimy or the Scheldt or even his own great military triumph, H.M.C.S. Kandahar.  No, forget that last one.

I'll bet old lard-ass was just itching to name a ship after himself.
