Lest We Forget

Remembrance Day is not for honouring past glories but for remembering past lessons, learned by a lost generation that was butchered and damned. Yet, though three Canadian veterans of the Great War are with us still, Mr. Harper has hijacked its observance in the name of partisan propaganda. Using Remembrance Day's solemnity, McCrae's deep sadness, and scenes from the killing fields of France to glorify war is unconscionable.
