Steyn on Canada and the Commonwealth
A soldier was shot dead at the National War Memorial in Ottawa this morning, following the fatal hit-and-run attack on two soldiers in St Jean-sur-Richelieu in Quebec on Monday. That shooter or possibly another shooter then fled the short distance to Parliament, where more shots were fired.

A "Canadian" "family" goes on trial in Kingston
Over at Lilley's Pad, the eponymous proprietor draws my attention to a "Canada Day" piece by Tim Naumetz, who writes for The Hill Times in Ottawa. Mr Naumetz makes the argument that Stephen Harper is "changing the face of Canada". I use the word "argument" loosely. By "changing the face of Canada", he meansĀ Harper is changing it from "the face of Canada"Ā PierreĀ Trudeau imposed on the nation 40 years ago. Which was, in effect, M Trudeau's own face.
