Vimy Ridge

But, as the final trumpet sounds for the admirable Canadians, neither can we be ignorant about the price they paid, nor the gift they left us. Freedom was that gift, ladies and gentlemen; freedom, and the responsibility to use it for great purposes.

Today is the 93rd Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

My grateful thanks to all who fought, and still fight, for my freedom.


  1. Can I just say how proud I am of my adopted country with Stephen Harper as it's Prime Minister. He gets it, really.

  2. Can we borrow him? Pretty please?

  3. Maybe we'll be lucky and The Mesiah won't screw things up too badly before he goes. If not, hopefully the Torries will gain strenght in Canada.

    I cannot help but think that the anyone in Canada who is paying attention is frightened by what is happening in the U.S., and realize that they may have to step up and be the adult here.
