The battle for Vimy Ridge began on April 9th, 1917.
It lasted for four days and ended on April 12th, 1917.

Canada fought as a combined Corps and managed to take the position sustaining
10,602 casualties: 3,598 killed and 7,004 wounded.

Backed up by planning and the cooperation of British and Canadian Artillery and a new device on the battlefield known as "The Walking Barrage", the Canadian Corps managed to succeed where other units had failed.
Brigadier-General A.E. Ross declared after the war, “in those few minutes I witnessed the birth of a nation.”

That all happened exactly 100 years ago.

Lest we forget.

Last night I read the above article on the first Prime minister of Canada , A Scot who came to this country when a young boy with his parents from Scotland .

I had read about him in the past and I had a pretty good opinion of him as a Prime Minister but now after reading the above article, I have since changed that opinion.

He was Sir John A MacDonald .

Angel, my sincere thanks to you for posting this link. You and I have had our differences in the past, so you could have refrained from posting it. I appreciate the honesty you have shown in posting this link.

Sincere regards

It's looking like nature is controlling those
wild forest fire's in BC , seems like the
fire services are getting nowhere in their
fight to control these infernos .
there are more than 200 fires and they
are just erupting everywhere and thousands
of people are being evacuated and they will
probably lose everything they have worked for
most of their lives .

The Tinder dry conditions and the winds
which are so unpredictable are the root
of the problem and the more these fires
escalate the more the wildfires create
their own weather systems , it is absolute
devastation.

Finally,

an upward turn in the Interest Rates after seven long years of abysmal returns.

Hopefully, now Canadians will be shocked into spending less and reducing personal debtloads.

Hope the rising trend continues until it hits at least 5%.
