Tim's Tip of the Day

It is such a rare event in Saskatchewan this year so it seems appropriate to remind you that when it is raining it is probably better to not stand around in it and get wet, well unless you need a shower.

Ensign Notes

It is important to note that most of the Op Ed material on this site is accompanied with references. These references often are absolutely vital to understanding the story and we urge you to make use of these. In the last month almost all newspaper links are been saved on this site as PDF files so that they will remain available in the years to come.

Canada's Armed Forces unprepared, under supported and over committed
