In Flander's Field...

Today is Remembrance day. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. It certainly does not take very long to offer a moment of thanks to all the fallen soldiers who have given their lives at the cost of our freedom. As Canadians, we are not known as a patriotic people, our common heritage derives from hockey, maple syrup and an overall laid back attitude shared by both official languages. Yet there is something about today that makes us all proud to be Canadian. To all soldiers, past and present, I would like to offer a heartfelt thank-you.
