  1. May they rest in Peace —
    Although I do not support Canada’s part in this war, I appreciate that you take the time to honour these young lives lost.

  2. Good point, dawne. it’s crucial to distinguish disagreement with Canada’s military role in Afghanistan from sympathy for the families and anger/sadness over lives lost.

    As a fresh CBC poll reveals, fewer Canadians than ever support the so-called “mission.” See http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2008/09/05/poll-afghan.html?ref=rss
