    As I cannot initiate a new thread in the news category, I am forced to start it here.
    Today CANADA lost a corporal, in the reserves, murdered by an extremist in our capital. He was on honor guard at our War Memorial in ceremonial uniform (His weapon was unloaded, as are the US guards at Arlington).
    I believe he should receive our country's highest decoration -Guarding the tomb of the unknown soldier with an empty weapon!

    And let's not forget this happens two days after another soldier was killed and a third injured in Montreal by another extremist.

    I'm in a rare state of general anger at this whole situation. To think that these bastards can freely walk around in our midst and have the gall to attack our own people and institutions just chokes me up. Our police and security agencies are tracking some 80 individuals in this country who are on a watch list after having been brainwashed by extremists. Round em up, make them squeal on the network that converted them and chuck the lot in the slammer for life. And I mean LIFE.

    F!ckin' pricks.

    well said Andy.

    there is lot of the same feeling here, i am worried that pressure to do something is building and come our next elections too many people will vote for none main stream parties and we end up with lots of far right nutters in parliment !

    Swift reaction is important, but not at the expense of our laws and values. The death penalty was abolished in Canada in 1976. Nevertheless, there will be plenty of challenges to our civil liberties in the coming days and months, if not years as the balance between freedom and security tips.

    Sad news indeed. My condolences to his family and to your nation for the soldiers killed by these douche bags. Maybe they should be beheaded by women and the video sent to the middle east with a warning that women will sent them to hell where they will be molested by 144 infidels endlessly forever.

    Day is done C'est la nuit
    Gone the sun Tout se tait
    From the lake Sur les plaines,
    From the hills Les collines,
    From the sky Et les bois;
    All is well C'est la paix
    Safely rest Tout est bien
    God is nigh Et Dieu vient.

    I wish I could say something profound or poetic but I can't, what I can say is we are right behind you as you were with us in time of need. It really is time to stop messing about with this death cult.

    Only Churchill's words resonate, do your worst and we will do our best...........

    "Land of the Free because of the Brave"

    Cpl. Cirillo began his trip home to Hamilton from Ottawa. Thousands of mourners populated the highway to pay honour to this soldier. Attached are a couple of pictures to show the out pouring of sentiment to this fallen soldier.
