There used to be a time when taking on the Royal Navy was a bad idea. The force that policed the high seas through two world wars and protected the largest empire ever seen was for years the emblem of British national pride and pugnacity. Which is why it was particularly humiliating for many Britons to witness the spectacle of the navy’s finest peddling stories about their capture a couple of months ago by the Iranian Republican Guard to the newspapers.

BRAVO, MACLEAN’S, for your cover story on the impending baby shortage in Canada (“Can we feed the need to breed?” Society, May 28). Writer Lianne George touched on several key issues, economic and societal, which need to be addressed before this situation will improve.
