I never thought I'd see the day, but I must comment on a letter to the editor of the Vancouver Sun by Ben Mulroney, of television's eTalk. He respectfully took issue with a column by Craig and Marc Kielburger, who had written that "Canada's prominence on the international stage started back in 1956, when Lester B. Pearson launched the world's first peacekeepoing mision during the Suez Crisis."
"That is patently false," wrote Mulroney, and went on to cite our country's 60,000 service deaths in the First World War and 50,000 in the Second. He eloquently countered "Suez" with "Normandy."
Good for him.
