ICYMI: Canada has not awarded a Victoria Cross since 1945. Are we mature enough to recognize that errors or omissions can be – and should be – fixed? Blue Skies brought together two experts to explore recalibrating the Canadian military honours system.

The Canadian Victoria Cross has never been awarded. Should it have been in Afghanistan? I'm joined by @okeefehistorian & Ed Lengel of @MohMuseum to discuss how our allies correct the historic record to ensure no act of valour is forgotten. @CanadianCross

Canadian Veterans have been advocating for Private Jess Larochelle to be awarded the Victoria Cross for his courageous actions in Afghanistan. The Blue Skies podcast explores the important issue of recalibrating valour. @CanadianCross

Another example of words from the Trudeau government not being matched with serious action. We must partner with other countries to expedite getting people out of Afghanistan.

After two years of Covid, it was great to see thousands out at Maple Fest in Bowmanville today.

A job can provide the purpose that people with mental illness or injury desperately need in their recovery, but old attitudes and programs often hold them back. Time to turn talk into action. #mentalhealthweek

Sam Sharpe's relative receiving LCol. (Ret'd) Christian Lillington's book at yesterday's 9th Annual Sam Sharpe Breakfast. A special moment showing we've come a long way on mental health and still have work to do. #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek
