The Toronto Catholic District School Board had to pass new guidelines, forcing students to “sing” O’Canada. I just listened to the news and heard students state that they will not sing “O Canada“, or that they were “embarrassed” to sing it. Also heard one say “I will not be singing it because its my right not to”, with a very disturbing tone. How did we get to this point? What happened to our patriotism? Do we care about Canada? It’s only a “Pittance in Time”, to those who fought and died so we could enjoy it. Just saying!

16 people were left dead after an American soldier went on a house-to-house on a shooting rampage in two villages. We already were on shaking ground in Afghanistan, however I believe that this may cause an earthquake. It’s unfortunate because in Western countries, if something like this happened, we would have sought justice through our judicial system. The Taliban is already calling American’s “savages”. It makes no sense, since they will kill all sorts of innocent people, but its all propaganda. Obviously something cracked in this solider and I think those in power need to find out, as soon as possible, why he did what he did. This incident will place a large amount of people in harm’s way. With an election year coming, I am sure that many will try to find a way to capitalize on this situation. Karzai has already said “this is unforgivable”, in a country where punishment would be met with a death sentence. The Taliban will for sure use it to rally the Afghan people against America and their western allies. I can only hope that reason will prevail, otherwise this story is going to get a lot more complicated.
