    Jack Granatstein on how Conservatives are treating the CF

    Long time lurker here, I just wanted to say I enjoyed reading the article and thx for posting it up. I more or less agree with just about everything Mr.Granatstein has said that I've read and this article is no different. I have that book "Whos War is it?" but have not had a chance to get around...

    The pipes in Afstan and a new tune

    Very touching, one cannot help but observe a moment of silence during and after this tune. Especially after reading the article. Canada & Canadians (the ones with brains anyway) not only support our Airmen, Sailors & Soldiers but give them their deepest respect.I live in Halifax and there...

    Where do you call home?

    I was born in Ottawa Ontario, however I have lived in Halifax NS my entire life so I have plenty of salt water in my blood in my humble opinion. I am a Maritimer through & through. Ironically enough I will most likely be headed back to Ottawa in the very near future for schooling.

    Anti-War Vigil at Armoury

    Its a shame how uninformed people are, I am a civilian but I try to be as educated as possible as one can be essentially, I take most news on tv with a grain of salt, and the hippies dont even get me started. Halifax is a military town and we even have those filth here. For example, that one...

    Joining UK Armed Forces

    One thing I think all Canadians are familiar with is the sense of humor to poke fun at ourselves. I read what you said the top paragraph about England to a very close friend I would be there with when I go, and she said "Sooo true" concerning this Britain is a pain in the arse, but that's...
