None of the men who fought the Battle of Vimy Ridge are around to speak for themselves but veterans groups have been lobbying the government to fly the Red Ensign at the 90th Anniversary ceremonies at the Vimy Memorial in France in April. Seen here on a WW1 recruiting poster.

The new budget has been presented in the House, I've got initial response to it over on Out of the Shadows. Doesn't look like the government will fall right at this point.

Over at Out of the Shadows I've had, I hope, a bit of a sober look at the British inquiry's findings that the US killing of a British soldier at the beginning of the Iraq war was unlawful. It doesn't seem to be so much the Yanks protecting their own as much as a difference in the standards of order and good discipline.

On Out of the Shadows I have posted an update on the report of the cowardly attack on a decorated Canadian Soldier, Master Cpl Collin Fitzgerald, in a Morrisburg bar last Friday night. Three of four reported to have taken part in the attack have now been charged. I also had a look at some of the postings on other blogs on the subject.

I had to reign in some anger while writing this post at Out of the Shadows today. For me it just defies any rhyme or reason that a person would attack another person without provocation. To attack him because he's a hero just mind boggles.

They shall grow not old, as we who are left grow old
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning
We will remember them
In memory of our fallen Canadian:

Yesterday I noticed an article in the Globe & Mail about the province and the feds feuding while children of our Canadian soldiers went without much needed mental health services that the province was refusing to pay for even though it is the province is responsible for the delivery of health care services. As I do at times, I waited a day to see if anything else developed. It did and I write about that at Out of the Shadows today.
It is no secret that Harper and his gang of bullies has used lies and distortions when the truth doesn't work to slander and smear the Liberals. His dirty game of the worst of politics went to a new level yesterday in the House of Commons. I talk about it on Out of the Shadows.

Ah don't we just love it when the high and mighty get knocked down a peg or two? Harper loved to attack the Liberals from the opposition benches and portray them as sucking from the public trough. Now he's the one at the trough and guess what, he sucks from it as much as anyone else. I have a look at that over at Out of the Shadows.
