National War Memorial

cowardice, pure cowardice, to shoot, to kill one of our young citizen soldiers, a reservist, on duty at our National Memorial. a memorial dedicated to our forebears that took up arms in defence of Canada and the world’s safety in the realm of disaster response in Haiti, Pakistan, Sri Lanka… a real warrior would never, ever be so cowardly as to kill like this. cowardice, pure cowardice.

I have spent thousands of hours with reservists who train, show up, do what they are asked to do, put their lives in danger, all in their spare time, often with little recognition. my sincere condolences to this soldier’s family and loved ones.
