ANZAC Service & BBQ – April 28, 2019

The Royal Canadian Legion encourages all members in the San Francisco Bay Area to attend this event.  For those that are unaware, ANZAC Day is celebrated on the anniversary of the Battle of Gallipoli.  While the main Allied combatants were from Australia and New Zealand, there was a British contingent there in the form of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment.  This was some ~35 years before Newfoundland would join Canada.

On behalf of the Australian and New Zealand communities in San Francisco, it is our honour to invite you to attend the annual ANZAC Day service to be held in San Francisco on Sunday 28 April 2019.

ANZAC Day is observed by the people of Australia and New Zealand in official recognition of the first time the two young nations fought together overseas in a major way.

This historic event took place in 1915 at Gallipoli on the Turkish Peninsular and is commemorated by expatriates, as well as their countrymen at home, acknowledging the ultimate sacrifice made by so many at that time and in subsequent conflicts.

Following the ceremony at the Log Cabin, there will be a BBQ with light refreshments and a no host bar. There is also plenty of room for a game of cricket or footy.
Date: Sunday April 28, 2019

Location: Lob Cabin, Presidio

Time: 11am Service, 12pm BBQ

Please purchase your BBQ tickets to assist with catering. 

BBQ Tickets: $25 per person and $15 per child.

The Anzac Centenary is a milestone of special significance to all Australians. The First World War helped define us as a people and as a nation.

During the Anzac Centenary we will remember not only the original Anzacs who served at Gallipoli and the Western Front, but commemorate more than a century of service by Australian servicemen and women.

The Anzac Centenary Program encompasses all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations in which Australians have been involved.

The Program aims to give all Australians the opportunity to honour the service and sacrifice of all those who have worn our nation’s uniform, including the more than 102,000 who have made the supreme sacrifice.

It also aims to encourage all Australians to reflect upon and learn more about Australia’s military history, its costs and its impacts on our nation.

Update National Defence – Research & Development Canada – Aircrew Survey

We encourage any members of the Royal Canadian Legion that are eligible for this research to participate.


The researchers behind the recent survey on the signs and symptoms of mild hypoxia are extremely grateful for your high response rate to their survey. In fact, having initially expected to collect data from only 150 responders, the online tool automatically stopped collecting data after 200 surveys had been completed (by generating an error message). They have now rectified this problem, and can collect data from an additional 350 responders until 31 March 2019 at which point the link will be closed permanently. Please feel free to complete the survey at your convenience. The researchers are truly grateful for your support, and apologize for any inconvenience. The link to the survey appears below (two spaces have been added after the https: in the first link to help avoid it being stripped by the DWAN (military-government) servers; copy and paste into your browser and delete the two spaces to make it work):

Women to support women on gruelling Arctic trek

Story by Stephen J. Thorne
As vice-president of training, learning and development at Mackenzie Investments, Libby McCready spends her days in meetings, on the phone, corralling e-mails and delivering presentations.

If all goes as planned, in a month’s time she will be completing a 100-kilometre trek across Baffin Island in Nunavut with 24 other women, seven of them currently serving in Canada’s military. Four guides, two Inuit, a military doctor and a photographer will complete the lineup.

The expedition aims to raise $1 million for women’s programs supported by True Patriot Love, a charity devoted to bridging gaps in government funding for serving military, veterans and their families as well as backing related health research.

Canadian peacekeepers arrive in Cyprus

Canadian peacekeepers arrive in Cyprus

The RCAF began delivering troops and supplies for the Canadian contingent of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Cyprus on March 13, 1964. No one expected the Canadian mission would end 29 years later, or that Canada would continue to have a presence on the Mediterranean island to this day.

Trouble started almost immediately after Cyprus gained its independence from Britain in 1959. Both Greek and Turkish Cypriots wanted to unite with their mother countries. Civil war broke out in 1963, and Greece and Turkey both threatened to intervene to protect their ethnic communities.

Canadian troops were part of the UN peacekeeping force enforcing the ceasefire. Tensions continued even after the island was split into Turkish and Greek republics, with a UN-maintained buffer zone between.

CAN Big Give Update (last email, we promise)

A third item from one of our fellow Canadian organizations in the Bay Area.

Canadian Studies Big Give
Dear Friends of Canadian Studies,
Pardon this intrusion into your inbox. We promise this is the last you will hear from us today. Some great news, as of 2:00 PM Pacific Time, we have raised over $17,000 from 15 donors! We still have $8,000 to go to meet our goal. Will you take a moment and make a contribution to support Canadian Studies?
Support Canadian Studies… For the undergraduate students. In the Fall 2018, Canadian Studies sent Berkeley undergraduate Fallon Burner to the First Nations Language Keepers Gathering in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She said “I couldn’t have done this without your help and I em eternally grateful!” Support Canadian Studies to support undergrads like Fallon — Donate here!
Support Canadian Studies… For the graduate students. Canadian Studies Hildebrand Fellow Erika Brown is researching how direct income transfers can reduce food insecurity in Ontario. Kimberly Thien Huynh is currently researching the release of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, from wetlands, including Burns Bog in Delta, British Columbia. Support Canadian Studies to support grad students like Erika & Kimberly — Donate here!
Support Canadian Studies… For the public programming. Canadian Studies Colloquia events are open to EVERYONE. Recent topics have included the US/Mexico/Canada Agreement (also known as “New NAFTA”), “Why Canadians Love Immigration and Americans Aren’t So Sure,” “The Performativity of Land Acknowledgments and Settler Whiteness” and “Understanding the 2015 Canadian Election.” Support Canadian Studies to support public education programs like the Colloquium series — Donate here!
Support Canadian Studies… For the research. In 2017 Canadian Studies convened a team of scientists and First Nations and tribal leaders to draft a short policy paper on a modernized Columbia River Treaty. This publication was influential in the Canadian-American treaty negotiation process, and was read by high-level policymakers in Ottawa. In May 2019 we will convene another team on the future of the Columbia River Treaty. The upcoming Berkeley workshop was discussed by negotiators in Washington DC. Support Canadian Studies for the research — Donate here!
Support Canadian Studies… for the tax deduction! Did you know that UC Berkeley is an IRS 501(c)(3) and a Revenue Canada recognized tax-exempt organization, so your contribution may be tax-deductible on American or Canadian federal income taxes? (consult your tax professional). Support Canadian Studies for the tax deduction.

CAN Big Give

A second item from one of our fellow Canadian organizations in the Bay Area.

Canadian Studies Big Give
Dear Friends of Canadian Studies
Greetings from Canadian Studies! We are writing with some exciting news. You may remember the late Thomas Garden Barnes, founder of the Canadian Studies Program at Berkeley. The Barnes Family has made a generous donation in support of Canadian Studies, at the Northwest Territories Diamond Level in the Berkeley Maple Leaf Society.
What is the Berkeley Maple Leaf Society, you may be wondering? The members of the Berkeley Maple Leaf Society are the loyal supporters of Canadian Studies who make research and teaching on Canada at Cal possible. You can learn more about the Maple Leaf Society on our brand new redesigned website, at
The annual Cal Big Give is TODAY, March 14, 2019. Our goal is to match the Barnes family’s generosity, and double their Northwest Territories Diamond-level gift. Will you join us in this effort? You can make your contribution securely online anytime between now and at 9:00 PM Pacific at this link and your gift will be credited towards Canadian Studies’ Big Give Total. This allows Canadian Studies to compete for matching funds from campus, during the Big Give.
Your support helps keep Canadian Studies a vibrant part of intellectual life at Berkeley. We hope you will join us in our goal of matching the Barnes family gift during the 2019 Big Give. Thank you for your support. We could not do it without you.
