Keep your eyes open folks.
I’m putting the chances at almost zero that they’re gonna try anything, but the chances are still there. If you see any mysterious packages or any unattended bags or anything, notify any nearby authorities and try not to create a panic. If you see any suspicious persons keep an eye on them. Don’t make irrational judgements and stay sharp.

Did you know? In 2001, the then Canadian Prime Minister (PM), Jean Chretien, did not know that Canada’s elite Special Operation Forces, Joint Task Force 2 (JTF2), had deployed and were engaging enemy forces in Afghanistan (OEF).
It wasn’t until news reports several months later, showing the distinctive forest-green Canadian Forces combat uniform, that Chretien and the Canadian public were first aware of JTF2’s involvement of OEF.

I’m looking into adding another two members to this blog.

We need people who aren’t as busy as the rest of us and with extensive knowledge of the Canadian Military and its history.
Just send me an email at ottawas_taco_stand@yahoo.com with a quick blurb to introduce yourself including your name, age, location, URL and explaining why you’re interested.

Thanks!

-André


Hey, guys. I know I said I wasn’t going to abandon this blog but I just have too much going on(school, work, etc) and I don’t have time to post, or even use my computer at all. I literally have no free time at all. I’m sorry. Maybe Andre will look into adding another member to the blog. *hint hint*

75 years ago, millions of Canadians went to bed thinking they still lived in a peaceful world.

Come morning, their lives would be profoundly shaken and Canada would find itself in the midst of a painful dilemma - should we go to war again and risk so much heartbreak and destruction when we had already lost so much? Should we side with the British empire and dive head first into a new conflict for king and country? Or should we keep to ourselves, stay out of the war and continue tending to the wounds left by the first war?

In the end, we chose neither.

We chose to side with humanity, and declared war on Nazi Germany on September 10, 1939.

It was the only time we ever declared war.

Forty thousand of our countrymen would lie dead within six years.
