Canada's 100 Days

Colonel (Retired) Keith Maxwell, OMM, CD, was guest speaker at the Churchill Society of BC's AGM and dinner meeting last week. Colonel Maxwell, who among other duties in his career with the Canadian Forces served with NORAD in Colorado Springs, later worked for NATO in Brussels. He took advantage of his location to study and walk World War One battlefields, and has since led many educational tours in France and Belgium.
His speech to the Churchill Society was butressed with photos and maps that brought home the brutality of that conflict, but also pointed out the huge contribution of Canada's soldiers to the developing maturity of our nation on the international stage.
