Dave Burke's 40 years in Canadian military were part of family tradition
Cape Breton Post
When Sgt. Dave Burke retired last month from a career that could arguably be called his family's tradition, it marked the end of a 40-year odyssey that took him to every province in Canada, 21 American states and 40 countries. "It was pretty important to me," he said, when asked what it meant to join the Royal Canadian Air Force as a fresh-faced 19-year-old from Christmas Island on Nov. 28, 1973.

Nova Scotia ahead of mapping curve, must realize full potential
The Chronicle Herald
A weekend opinion piece by Iaian Archibald last month, "Let's map our way to excellence," has sparked a lot of conversation surrounding the idea of using mapping as a method of distinguishing Nova Scotia and, in turn, move us toward economic sustainability. Iaian makes a number of great points in his article, including that Nova Scotia is a special place and that Nova Scotia has many assets that it can leverage. But as Iaian also stresses, we have to understand our assets and allow that information to be used by our citizens, our visitors, and our private sector in order to make it truly useful.

The tragedy of Vimy is that so few Canadians understand it
National Post
Historical myths die hard. Myths about nationalism, independence, and war die especially hard. In Canada, the First World War and the battle of Vimy Ridge are among our most mythologized and least understood historical events. The problem is that myths are established after the fact to justify particular interpretations of the past.

Calgary Herald
It will be up to aerospace firms vying to supply Canada with new search-and-rescue aircraft to decide where such planes are to be located — a process that raises questions about private companies deciding the country's defence policy and where military staff are located. The Department of National Defence has confirmed that bids for the $3 billion search-and-rescue aircraft project will not only include details about the planes being offered but also where they are to be based.

First women move into army field artillery jobs as cannon platoon leaders
The Prince George Citizen
Under a canopy of trees on the edge of a large field, soldiers from Bravo Battery are lying in a circle as they pore over targeting charts. Nearby, others are preparing the howitzer cannons as helicopters swoop overhead. At the edge of the circle, the platoon leader watches as the field artillerymen go through their training exercise. No one seems to notice the small knot of hair at the base of the lieutenant's helmet, or that 1st Lt. Kelly Requa is the only woman on the field at Campbell's Crossroads on the sprawling grounds of Fort Bragg.

New range to keep skills sharp
North Bay Nipissing
All appears calm and quiet outside a little blue and grey building on the Canadian Forces Base North Bay. Inside the building, however, an armed drama is taking place. An angry man is holding a knife to the throat of an innocent hostage. "Drop the weapon!" several voices command.
