From the equality of rights springs identity of our highest interests; you cannot subvert your neighbor's rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own. Carl Schurz

Respect for the troops Harper style

If only the Conservatives and military brass had one iota of the class displayed by Cpl. Glen Kirkland

Gravely injured troops who want to remain uniform are being booted from the military before they qualify for their pensions, despite assurances to the contrary from the federal government.

Some of you may remember Cpl. Kirkland who after being booted from the military won a reprieve from Defense Minister MacKay well in solidarity with  his brothers and sisters in arms suffering the same callous treatment he received has decided to forgo the opportunity to stay. Saying he joined a “team and a family,”

I can't express enough how much respect I have for Cpl. Kirkland and the absolute contempt I have for the Conservatives and military brass

  1. It is indeed sad to realize that so many were willing to put themselves on the line in defense of what has become a thoroughly corrupted system, Kev.
