The nice thing is, there are more and more student trips to places like Juno and Vimy to teach the youth about our history. One would hope these "educated" kids would be the ones to turn in the thugs.

Nothing anyone has said here is inappropriate or too outrageous. These incomprehensible acts are totally out of line. You do not dishonour the dead, and especially those that dedicated their lives to life, liberty, and justice for all . Ingrates...all of them.

Yet another point to prove the case for retroactive abortion.  Time to thin the herd.... ::)
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

In a conversation with my dad the other night. I guess that the War Monument (Cenotaph) in River Hebert N.S. was vandalized by some teens. They smashed the head and broke the gun on the Monument itself.

The Local Legion is not taking this too lightly and are out for blood.

On a similar note. Just to make everyones blood boil a bit more. Does anyone remember a certain Trooper in an armour regiment to be named later (rhymes with bait Can I Aid Ian, Who's Thar). Who was charged for vandalism at Vimy Ridge in the early 1990's (Hint the guy wasn't in A or C, Recce, or HQ Sqn)

As embaressing as this is to say, I used to live in Kamloops, and probably went to school with the S***heads who did this. The even more sickening part is that my grandfather, a Decorated hero of WWII, had one of his friends grave stones overturned. WHy would anyone in their right mind, or in any state of mind, do something so evil. I am appalled at the gull of these people.

RAW
I'm not a bad guy! I work hard, and I love my family. So why should I spend half my Sunday hearing about how I'm going to Hell?

This has to be the most discusting thing I've seen In a while.Hats off to Dr. Michael Pilon who somehow managed to stay calm and now ram his fist down this hippies throat.It appears he has been asking for somekind of solution with no response.How about GGFG taking a post in ceremonial dress there.Having a troop actually there would proably be enough of a deterrent and being downtown be a tourist attraction.

So besides gestapo and curb stomping how else do you guys see preventing this desecration from happening?
