Canadian government to spend $488,000 on project to highlight Victoria Cross winners
Ottawa Citizen
The Canadian government is spending $488,000 on a visual and educational program that will inform Canadians about the wartime actions and sacrifices of the country's soldiers during the two world wars. The "Toll of War" project will be managed by the Milton F. Gregg Centre for the Study of War in New Brunswick, according to the government. The project will receive $488,155 to create a national banner campaign and produce educational material about Canada's Victoria Cross recipients. It is hoped this will encourage Canadians to learn more about these VC winners.

Military deploys intelligence team during Arctic exercise
Maclean's
The Canadian military has been routinely deploying a counter-intelligence team to guard against possible spying, terrorism and sabotage during its annual Arctic exercise, according to internal documents. In the view of intelligence experts, the move is unusual because Operation Nanook is conducted on Canadian soil in remote locations of the Far North. Foreign involvement is limited to friendly, close allies.

Erin O'Toole, new veterans affairs minister: 7 things to know
Huffington Post
Canadians have a new minister of veterans affairs after Julian Fantino's tumultuous tenure in the role came to an end recently. Erin O'Toole, MP for Ontario's Durham riding, has taken up the job of improving relations with veterans that became testy, to say the least, under Fantino's watch. As Maclean's points out, O'Toole may be well-placed to build bridges because he's a veteran himself.

Canada's top soldier says mission to Iraq 'very successful' so far
The Globe and Mail
The head of the Canadian Armed Forces says Canada's mission in Iraq against what he calls "heinous individuals" has been successful so far. The Canadian military joined the international campaign in October. It has been providing air support to help dislodge the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant from territory it seized last summer. "They've conducted over 300 sorties aimed at degrading the fighting capabilities of this brutal terrorist organization," Gen. Tom Lawson told a Calgary audience recently.

Coming to a battlefield near you — the smart grenade
Ottawa Citizen
The U.S. military will test sometime this summer new grenade rounds for M203 and M320 launchers that can sense walls and explode in an enemy's hiding place, writes Kyle Jahner of the Army Times. He writes that the technology, endorsed by all military branches in the U.S., is on the wish list of items for troops who want to better engage enemies in defilade, behind barriers. The idea is to provide a grenade round that has a high probability of making a "kill" on the first shot.

WWII vet reconciles past in final years
St. Catharines Standard
It took Second World War veteran Ken Rowland two decades to begin opening up about that conflict's brutality. By chance, the General Motors employee met another at the plant who'd also served during the war. Slowly, those locked out memories loosened, reports his sister Kendra Broadley. "It was really then that he started to open up," said Broadley. "He still didn't talk about the war brutality at home, only with the war buddies and at the Legion."

Gaza engineer has a plan for rebuilding homes without scarce cement, steel
Free Speech Radio News
Efforts to rebuild Gaza remain slow as the raw materials necessary trickle in past tightly-controlled border entry-points. A local civil engineer is reviving a plan to advance reconstruction with available materials.
