Governor General's message on the 75th Anniversary of Canada's entry into the Second World War
Ottawa Citizen
Seventy-five years ago, Canada officially entered the Second World War. Thousands of Canadians would go on to serve and more than 45 000 died overseas in the fight for freedom, democracy and equality, and to end tyranny and oppression. Today, many veterans in Canada remember the war with sharp clarity, just as the many Canadians who stayed on the home front remember how they helped the war effort. We must never forget what they sacrificed for us. We owe them all an enormous debt of gratitude.

Canadian military getting 20 bomb-sniffing robots
CTV News
The Canadian military is spending nearly $10 million to acquire 20 high-tech robots meant to sniff out radioactive dirty bombs as well as chemical and biological weapons. The deal was announced recently by the U.S.-based company iRobot, which won the contract through an open tender. The army's bomb disposal teams have used small robotic vehicles in their efforts to find and dismantle roadside bombs and booby traps, but the devices did not have the capability to detect weapons of mass destruction, the kind terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda have been trying to acquire.

How human factors engineering mitigates the 'Swiss cheese effect'
Eureka Magazine
On one level, the concept of human factors engineering would seem fairly self-explanatory. Products and systems are designed to be used by or for human beings and therefore it would seem obvious that building the physical needs and requirements of the user into a design should be a basic facet of the designer's brief. All too often, however, this is not the case.

Metro News

Canada joins NATO exercise in Ukraine
Canoe
The Ukrainian ambassador to Canada has been begging for boots on the ground. Recently, he got his wish with the announcement of Exercise Rapid Trident — an annual multi-national exercise being held this month in Ukraine. It was announced out of the Wales NATO Summit that Canada will be among 15 nations which will send troops to the war-torn country for the exercise. Thirteen Canadian Army soldiers will participate in the exercise, "as Canada continues to support our allies in Eastern Europe," the Prime Minister's Office said.

'Seriously cool' ways to see Halifax
Calgary Herald
At the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, a special program allows visitors to step back in time and spend a few hours in 1869 living the life of a British soldier. As my family and I stepped onto the courtyard of the fort in full historic costume, we had a new appreciation for the effort required by a British soldier to become properly "turned out."
