CP bulletin, Oct. 16, 1942: U-boat sinks SS Caribou in Cabot Strait

The original sat in a musty filing cabinet in the Halifax office of The Canadian Press for years: a sheaf of rice paper, its first page scrawled with the words “Passed by Censor 1942” across the top, just above the typed “BULLETIN.” It was dated Oct. 16 out of Sydney, N.S., the first news...
  • No connection between deployments and terrorist threats

    March 8, 2017 by Stephen J. Thorne

    March 1, 2017 by Stephen J. Thorne

    February 9, 2017 by Stephen J. Thorne
    Ask veteran soldiers their feelings about peacekeeping missions and chances are you’ll get a negative response. Acting as a third-party referee and police force in areas of hostility is like doing the job with one hand tied behind your back, they’ll say. Strict rules of...
  • Defence minister says NATO still plays a critical role

    February 1, 2017 by Stephen J. Thorne
    The survival of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is not in question, Canada’s defence minister suggested Feb. 1, nor is American involvement in the 68-year-old defence pact. In a wide-ranging interview with Legion Magazine, Harjit Sajjan expressed confidence the treaty will prevail despite President Donald...
