LCol Hawn on DART
It appears that Laurie Hawn of "Strong and Free" is a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the Canadian Forces. He has just posted an excellent letter to Prime Minister Martin about the grounded DART team and the degradation of the CF in general. His site is on my sidebar links. Have a look at his blog.
By the way, the CD after his name is earned by military service to his Queen and country. It is there because he has been awarded the Canadian Forces Decoration. Paul Martin cannot add CD to his name. Nor, I believe, can any other Liberal Cabinet Member. I assert that this is a large part of the problem.
