    ‘None is too many’: Memorial for Jews turned away from Canada in 1939 | News | National Post

    to top it all off... i get a negative rep with this statement "Why post this in a remembrance thread?" for the post...

    It's also daylight savings this sunday which means one free hr of riding, though God doesn't deduct for time spent on a bicycle anyways!

    everyone is on topic, what's your point?

    the freedom that we have is that we can remember everyone, the good and the bad.
    for some of us remembrance is not just one day a year.

    You can remember whatever you want but sometimes when you post random articles and websites it's not really clear what you're getting at. They can be interpreted differently than how you meant. Why not just say what you want to say yourself?

    I get what you were trying to say now and I agree...we should remember how genocides like that are started and not forget so it never happens again.

    i guess we didn't remember well - hence Bosnia and genocide in Srebrenica... right in the heart of Europe... politics is a biatch i guess... or is it lack of oil...

    James Risdale, RCN - Thank you!

    I don't have any pictures of him in uniform but here's a shot from '49 of him training the Admiral Mountbatten Sea Cadet Corps band drummers.

    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    We just had our Remembrance day ceremony at the Veteran's Centre. I work with vet's and families daily, but November 11 is the special day.

    My dad was in the Sea Cadets as well.

    I happened to be in my university library at 11:00 today. The general hum of student conversations decreased to near silence (aside from one conversation within earshot...)

    It was nice to see that even those not attending a ceremony still took a small moment to remember.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.
