We are very pleased that the Dennis Gruending at the United Church Observer has featured our organization in an article on his blog:
One hundred years ago this month, Europe stumbled toward a catastrophic war that killed and maimed an astonishing 37 million people. Roughly 61,000 Canadians, alone, died and another 150,000 were wounded. The Globe and Mail reported that the Conservative government plans to spend $38 million over the next six years to commemorate this and the country’s other wars — a figure that does not include the $30 million already spent celebrating the War of 1812. Among the plans is rededicating the National War Memorial in Ottawa.
A group called PeaceQuest, however, says that although it respects the military sacrifices made by Canadians, it believes that the government should also rededicate the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill. And if it won’t, then citizens should.
