    Survey on Future Remembrance Ceremonies

    Is that what they are teaching in school now? From what I recall as a school-boy ( long ago ) it was pretty simple. To remember CAF members who died in war.

    Survey on Future Remembrance Ceremonies

    That is the way it was taught to us in public school in the 1960's. Back then, Canada still had many, many, Silver Cross Mothers. https://globalnews.ca/news/932833/griefs-geography-mapping-torontonians-killed-three-wars/ I remember my grandmother wore her Silver Cross to church. And she was...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Did he? I remember when he was PM. What shocked and appalled me was the way he dressed. I was used to serious men wearing suits and ties.

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    Saw this in the "Remains found at Kamloops residential school..." thread, If that is what "the party" is going with, again, in the next federal election, good luck to them. This is how it went last time, "If your riding has a majority of visible minorities, there's an 85-per-cent chance it...

    German soldiers dismissed over Hitler birthday song

    Maybe their special forces. But, I don't believe any sensible German civilian on the Home-front would feel nostalgic about the old days. 3.37 million dwellings in Germany were destroyed by strategic bombing. 7,500,000 German civilians were also rendered homeless.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Canadians may not be as used to seeing military uniforms as our neighbours to the south. They had a draft until 1973. Our last one was 1945. Or, veterans wearing identifying clothing and insignia. How often do we see the old-timers proudly wearing their RCL jackets anymore? Even now I think...
