If you are familiar with the head set of uniformed Canadian soldiers, you would better understand the nature of my comment which was intended to be as insulting as you can possibly imagine.

I might lose my fellow travelling companion status of the RC church for saying this but here goes:

I bet the CAFs clean up their act before the RC church does.

13 deadly hours

Over 13 hours, a man disguised as a Mountie travelled nearly 200 kilometres through Nova Scotia, killing 22 people. The Fifth Estate explores what the RCMP knew about the gunman that night, how they remained one step behind and why the public was left in the dark.

The Liberals already have had their hands full with Trudeau's nepotism. Can't use any more.
 

LOL!   Thought about that as I was making the post.  The dumbest, stupidest scandal you could imagine.  


@haresfur:  The message for Americans and others with political problems is simple:  you are not alone.

I love Canadian scandals. If this is considered a major breach of ethics, you are doing something right.

Gotta go with you on this one. Banning red poppies? Absurd. https://www.history.com/news/w...

On a slightly related note, my Dad just sent me a few newspaper clippings my grandmother saved, about my grandfather home on leave while serving on the USS Boise. To tiny little Rufe, Oklahoma. The Boise had seen extensive action - see 'Battle of Cape Esperance' - to my knowledge my grandfather never talked about it.

Thanks for educating me, I wasn't aware of this:
Germans unleashed lethal chlorine gas for the first time in the war.
Nothing to defend, here.

My great grandpa fled from Flanders (Belgium) to Germany, escaping the then and there draft in the early years of WWI. I and my offspring (three kids of two different moms) still have his (Flanders) second name.

Sorry for not being knowledgeable, as per your standards. ~ Apparently only capable of viewing the world from a (mostly uneducated?) hun's den.  To be honest, Armistice Day is nothing we celebrate here in this country... 

Deep in my memory I must have heard of it before, but I've in-between forgotten about it. No offense meant... 

"Interestingly", Nov. 11, at the 11th hr. and 11 mins. in this country, the carnival-season begins (which I've always abhorred bc of it's craziness). Honestly, I don't know if there is any correlation involved?!

No offence taken.   

FWIW, I am a well socialized freemarket economist.  I view the punitive features of the Treaty of Versailles as the single most important reason for the rise of Hitler's fascist movement and the start of World War II in the European theatre.  

American lead-NATO has clearly not taken lessons from that period, witness the recent NATO membership of several former Warsaw Pact countries.
