    Fallen Comrades (retired members)

    I'm not sure if it is a "covid year effect" or something else but it seems that we have lost a disproportionate number of sappers this year. Pete Mushrow left us on Christmas Eve. https://cmea-agmc.ca/cwo-peter-k-mushrow-cd-retd

    Fates of former armouries

    Sigh. I guess I should have provided more detail on my thoughts. I will attempt to rectify that now. In his rebuttal, BG45 claims to be making no comparisons. In order for me to validate his statement “let’s not pretend he was the first PM to dress up”, I have to compare PM Trudeau’s...
