Red Ensign Standard Volume XXVlll
The Last Amazon has done an amazing job of the latest Red Ensign Standard. It's been a bit of a hiatus for the group over the summer but the return of Autumn has seen many thought-provoking posts from the group.

Kate muses -

Fifty years ago, school children in Canada could have told you what it
means to be a Canadian but the parameters have changed so radically that I
fear we are in danger of losing not only our place in the world but our
national will. Regionalism threatens all the ties that use to bind us. And
sorry, I cannot rally around our healthcare system and do not see waiting
patiently in line for years for a hip replacement or an MRI as a value that
I want to pass onto my children.

As someone currently on the endless list for a knee operation, I agree wholeheartedly.

Read the rest here. You'll be glad you did.

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
