REMEMBRANCE DAY – 2016

One of the privileges we enjoy as Canadians is the right to free speech, something we take for granted but, was won for us by those who fought for our country and prevented those who stifle free thought from taking it from us. My blog exists because of the sacrifices made by those before me and hopefully we can protect this privilege in the future. Some paid the ultimate sacrifice and were denied the benefits we now cherish. Take a moment to consider how lucky we are that we can spread the truth so easily. Some still try to stifle the truth through lawyers and bully boys but, we as Canadians, will continue to protect what has been earned for us. Take a moment this November 11th to respect those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to give you what you have now.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.

Colonel John McCrae

Remembrance Day coming up shortly – even Mattamy honours our vets.

As we approach November 11th, we are seeing a lot of programs on TV and other events honouring our veterans.  It is nice to see, especially when the youth of our nation are involved.

As you know, this blog is designed to inform the public about problems within the building industry, with Mattamy showcased as a builder not always up to snuff.

In fairness, I am including the following article to show that they sometimes do something right, although I’m not sure all veterans would favour this partnership, based on conversations I have had with some.  Considering how they screwed the people in Ottawa, at least it is something positive but I doubt it will heal the scars.

EMC News – For nine years, the Candlelight Tribute for Veterans has been Ottawaís way of honouring and remembering the service and sacrifice of its armed forces members in the lead-up to Remembrance Day.
Held at Lansdowne Park on Nov. 1, the ceremony brought together more than 500 veterans and 100 youth, many of whom took part in a lengthy procession where candles held by veterans were placed at the base of an array of wreaths.
The event kicked off Veteranís Week in Ottawa, this year the city partnered with local developer Mattamy Homes to create a lasting tribute to a famous war veteran who served his country on board a famed Canadian warship. Andre Audet, a gunner on the Tribal-class destroyer HMCS Athabaskan, was among the lucky crewmembers who survived the ship’s sudden sinking following two torpedo strikes on April 29, 1944.
For the full story, please see the Nov. 11 edition of the EMC.
