MacKay says defence department not to blame in plane delay
CBC News
After more than a decade of waiting for a new search-and-rescue plane, the military today is barely a step closer to flying one — and, that, says Defence Minister Peter MacKay, is not his fault. "I will express to you no small degree of frustration that we have not been able to move this project forward," MacKay said at a news conference in Ottawa.

Canada's military is getting a new name
National Post
Having already re-inserted royal into the names of the Canadian air force and navy, the Harper government is making another change to Canada's military identity. It is now quietly working to remind Canadians that their soldiers carry guns by doing away with the Chretien-era Canadian Forces to describe the military, and instead returning to former moniker Canadian Armed Forces.

Help us spread the word
Statistics Canada
Every year, millions of people donate money to charitable and non-profit organizations. By contributing financially to organizations and groups that support causes dear to their heart, donors want to contribute to the well-being of their fellow citizens or advance principles and values that they believe in. In recognition of the difference these donations can make in the community, governments provide income tax credits to encourage giving by taxpayers or match the amount donated by individuals in certain cases.

OP HUSKY AND THE RCAF
RCAF
On July 10th 1943, Canadian soldiers landed at Pachino, Sicily, marking the beginning of the Sicilian Campaign. While this campaign is little known, "Operation Husky" represented the first independent role for Canadian soldiers in the Second World War. They fought with courage and knocked the pins out of the German defences in Sicily. Their success came at a cost of over 560 men in honour of those who fought and those who fell. We are organizing a memorial capaign for the operation's 70th anniversary. Our campaign begins on the beaches of Pachino on July 10th, 2013 and features two main ceremonies.

The Bomber Command Memorial Book
RCAF
Please join our campaign to remember the fallen, inform Canadians of the sacrifices made by bomber command veterans. To date our partnership with Fighting High Publishing has contributed to the raising of £31,617. The 55,573 aircrew of Bomber Command lost their lives during the Second World War, yet no campaign medal was awarded and their bravery and sacrifice went largely unrecognized. On 28 June 2012 this was corrected with the dedication and unveiling of the Bomber Command Memorial in The Green Park, London. The journey from the initial idea to the unveiling of the memorial was a long and complex one and 'The Bomber Command Memorial - We Will Remember Them' book tells the story of the campaign. The mission of the Air Force Association of Canada is to inform new generations of Canadians about the history of their country’s air force. This would suggest we should try and put a copy of this invaluable book in every library. If you would like to purchase one for your library, call Rose (866-351-2322 ext 223) or e-mail Kitshop@airforce.ca today.
