What about the 2 GA Senate seats? I'll bet in 2 years the GOP control both houses in Congress.

I think my dad's friend Captain Deiziel was captured at Dieppe. He never spoke of his experience.

Father finished the war as a LCDR, RCNVR. In command of HMCS Lethbridge. The crew gave him the deck clock at the end of the war.

Father served 4 years on North Atlantic convoys aboard Flower Class Corvettes. He fought in many convoy battles and participated in the sinking of U536. This photo is in Halifax, 1941 when he joined HMCS Snowberry as a Sub.

being from Windsor, my father had many friends who fought with the Essex-Scottish at Dieppe. Operation Jubilee was a disater. A poorly planned operation with limited intelligence. Mountbatten to blame? Specuation is that the mission was to capture the new Kriegsmarine Enigma

I think Canada's percentage of losses was amongst the highest in the Commonwealth? Many seriously wounded as well

You can visit the memorial. It lists the 55,000 men who remain missing. There is a memorial band and prayer every night in memory of the dead.

We did a Flanders tour in 2018. Ypres was completely destroyed. Commonwealth losses were over 250,000 and over 50,000 missing. An entire generation of young men lost their lives. We saw the trenches where the gas attack took place. A terrible loss of life

Joe Biden favors a nationwide lockdown with measures similar to Michigan and California. These measures will cause dire consequences to the US. Trump was a bafoon but Biden is worse. Even Fran Kunz said so. Biden is a weak old man who will be pushed by the left

The theme is Operation Crusader and the relief of Tobruk, 1941. The North African Campaign doesn't deserve the attention it deserves.

The Panzer II has hit a mine and become disabled just before the barbed wire fencing. The Honey is going to be passing it o n it's way to a breakout at Tobruk, 1941

he'll impose more tax on middle class Canadians and let his elite friends keep their riches. Trudeau has divided Canadians along all lines.
