I was just coming here to post that. Very sad news. The way it reads, sounds like a Winnipeg reservist on a weekend exercise. Jim- here's hoping it's not one of your lads.

My thoughts are with our fallen comrade, and their friends and family.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Thoughts and prayers for the family and friends of the deceased.  :cdnsalute:


This said, and it had to be said, isn't it little weird to release the fact that a "person" died and that a Winnipeg reserve unit was training at the base without making any specific connection between the two, and not identifying the victim as, at the very least, a "soldier"?

I am trying not to read too much between the lines, but it sounds like a civilian was killed and that the accident involves the reserve unit somehow. Driving accident on base?

Just saying it's a weird report.

Multiple unconfirmed reports it was a reservist. Terrible news.

Thanks for the info. No doubt that The Rifles will support the family to the best of their ability.

Not having a good two weeks.  :facepalm:

No word thus far on who or the possible cause.

I’ll do my best to keep you updated. I’ve contacted the CO and offered assistance if it’s needed.
