Canada’s military scores a number of firsts

By Stephen J. ThorneJune 2017 was a pretty good month for Canada’s military. First, there was
the defence policy review, released after a year-long consultation process.
Then there were two individual accomplishments: a world record for the longest
confirmed kill shot in military history, at 3,540 metres, and the first female officer
to command troops guarding the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Canada at 150

A selective look back at the
people and events that made us

By Don Gillmor

Canada was formed by a combination of hope and fear; hope that something great could be created in the wilderness, and fear of American imperialism and Fenian raiders. At 150, we are no longer young, but compared to our aging parents (England is 1,146 years old, if you count Alfred the Great as its first king, France a creaky 1,531), we remain youthful. When we look back at our shared mythologies—the people, politics and events that made Canada, we see heroism, occasional chaos and the overcoming of long odds, starting with Confederation.
