Heritage Minute honours New Brunswick soldier

Honouring the sacrifices made for our freedom.

A new Heritage Minute is honouring the war-time contributions of New Brunswick's Archie MacNaughton, in recognition of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy.

Today we pause to remember and commemorate D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.

75 years ago our Canadian soldiers joined the Allied forces in the long-awaited strike against the Nazis in France, fighting in the most horrific conditions and overcoming the greatest odds to secure a beachhead on the European continent and in doing finally began the long end of the Second World War.

Under circumstances we can hardly imagine, thousands of Canadians soldiers stormed Juno Beach and at a great cost by the end of the day the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division and the 2nd Canadian Armoured Bridge had advanced further than any other Allied force.

Canadians across this great country owe the freedom we enjoy to those courageous soldiers. We remember with pride the part that our brave men and women played in defeating Nazi tyranny. And we hold in our hearts immense gratitude for the ultimate sacrifice made by so many Canadian soldiers.

We must never forget their sacrifice and continue to honour them by building a world of peace, freedom and justice. Lest we forget.

Love this!  So true!

Well. You should check out his rendering of Daddy Sherry from this summer's The Kite - A Hilarious Comedy!

For a charcuterie board or similar appetizer spread, how important is it to have everything labeled, and to what extent? Type of meat/cheese? Organic or not? Gluten/dairy free? Brand? The beautiful layouts I see on Pinterest are not labeled at all, but I worry that might be a complication for some people. Thoughts?

I'd love to get to know you better! What book have you reread the most? Mine is definitely Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! As a teenager I'd read it to help my brain shut off for the night - it was familiar enough that I didn't mind stopping if I got sleepy, and short enough that it wouldn't be a crisis if I didn't get sleepy, and ended up finishing it! I've probably read it twenty times!

Very thankful to have woken up this morning, for a few reasons: we get to see Bright Star one last time, we're bringing some special guests, and our house smelled terribly of natural gas when we got home last night! We tried to air it out, but it was still pretty distinct when I fell asleep, not sure if my exhaustion was due to our busy day or gas inhalation! Looking forward to a much better quality stove in the new house, thanks to Velvet Eliuk!
