Re: Warrior Nation

1812 — the most embarrassing war.

Dateline: Tuesday, May 22, 2012

From: B Ross Ashley

This is funny. The Harperites have perhaps forgotten that the other side in that war was their friends the Americans?

My choir, Common Thread, are singing one tune this year that mentions the 1812 - 1815 war in another context, Terry Tufts' "Never No More": We faltered not at Crysler's Farm, held ground at Lundy's Lane; with might and pluck bold vict'ry struck on the shores of Chateauguay; And now they think we have no fight, No pride, no hope, no shame: Never no more, never no more, Never no more, again.

When we sang it at an event for the Kachin refugees in Myanmar a month ago, Jim Karygiannis, the Conjob MP for Scarborough-Agincourt, got up and left.
