Respect the Veterans

Wow, awesome. Pissing on the Canadian War Memorial, on Canada Day. Nothing says 'Thanks for serving our country!' like urinating on THE symbol of the sacrifices made by the many men and women that were killed while wearing the uniform.The worst part

Wow, awesome. Pissing on the Canadian War Memorial, on Canada Day. Nothing says 'Thanks for serving our country!' like urinating on THE symbol of the sacrifices made by the many men and women that were killed while wearing the uniform.

The worst part is, the only charges that can be brought against them are slaps on the wrists. Maybe the gov't might want to give a thought to making defacing a war memorial a serious crime.

To those that don't think it's a big deal, learn some history. Go visit the War Museum in Ottawa if you get a chance. Or read a book like 'Vimy' by Pierre Burton. Men lived in a shit filled trench for a year, have been shot, blown up, stabbed, bludgeoned or generally messed up. And now, women have the chance to get the same, because they believe they're making a difference in others lives, while risking their own.

Well, congratulations shitheads. I hope in your drunken stupor you contracted all manner of horrible VDs that you won't discover until permanent damage has resulted.

ps. One final, more general point; for those of you that don't agree with what the CF is doing at the moment, don't blame the guys on the ground; they are only implementing the policy of the gov't.



Incidentally, the official gov't policy can be found at:

FYI: Hasn't changed since the conservatives came to power.

Deeply disgusted
