Well in both cases they were completely taken by surprise, I was going to say arm all service members, like they do in the us,
I guess in both these cases it would not have made a difference.

It is sad for sure, lost for words, only to say that my thoughts are with both of them, and feel for both families.

I hope that all Canadians are more alert to there surroundings going forward, as these subjects who are pursuing these cowardly acts, are so high on drugs, that they have no fear of death.

Military gets new social media policy in wake of attacks

Members of Canada’s National Defence staff and Canadian Armed Forces are being asked to remove any reference to their employment on social media profiles, “especially photographs of military personnel in uniform.”

The Canadian Forces Counter Intelligence Unit - Western Region issued a new directive regarding social media practices to soldiers and staff on Friday, two days after a reservist guarding the National War Memorial in Ottawa was shot dead.

The staff bulletin was prompted by a recent increase of reports made to the unit’s western branch of military personnel -- or their family members -- receiving “friend requests” on Facebook.

In addition to adjusting privacy and security settings on their personal profiles, military personnel are being asked to search their children’s social media contact lists and delete any profiles they do not know personally.

“Adjust your privacy / security settings so only your friends can view your photos / timeline, etc.,” the directive said. “Repeat this procedure with family members (siblings/elderly parents/children, etc) who are not familiar with security or privacy settings.”

If members continue to receive “friend requests” from unfamiliar people or “suspicious characters” they are urged to notify their local military police detachment.

Soldiers were also provided with Facebook and Twitter “smart cards,” which provide visual steps on how to adjust privacy and security settings.

Following the killings of two soldiers earlier this week, the Canadian Armed Forces ordered military personnel to avoid wearing their uniforms in public. Miltary officials eased the order on Thursday, saying soldiers may wear their uniform on their way to and from work.

From the social media bulletin:

Should you receive a Friend Request on any social media site from someone you do not know, do not accept that person’s Friend Request.
Should your children have social media site access, go through their contact list with your children and delete all contacts they do not know personally.
Adjust your privacy / security settings so only your friends can view your photos / timeline, etc. Repeat this procedure with family members (siblings/elderly parents/children, etc) who are not familiar with security or privacy settings.
Remove any reference to your employment with the DND and/or CAF from all social media sites, especially photographs of military personnel in uniform.
If, after all the above steps are taken and you continue to receive “Friend Requests” from people you do not personally know or suspicious characters, please notify your nearest MP Detachment.

Family of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo gather in Oakville for special memorial

Family of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo gather in Oakville for special memorial.

Jun 13, 2016

Family members of slain Canadian soldier Corporal Nathan Cirillo gathered for a special memorial ceremony at the Bronte Veterans Garden Friday.

Students from St. Dominic Catholic Elementary School contacted the family recently to express thanks for Cirillo’s service and asking his family members to help unveil a plaque in his honour.

The sun shone on the morning ceremony that was attended by dozens of St. Dominic students and staff, as well as officials from the Town, Province, Royal Canadian Legion and others.

Some students held Canadian flags next to enlarged photos of Cirillo.

One photograph showed the Canadian soldier lovingly holding his dog while another showed him in full uniform standing guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Ottawa, where he lost his life when a gunman attacked in October 2014.

“Today is a very special day. We will unveil a plaque to honour and remember Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. Cpl. Cirillo stepped up and chose to serve his country. He freely made the decision, as many thousands of Canadians have done before him, to serve and defend Canada with pride,” said Grade 7 student Lauren Smith.

“He could have been our older brother, cousin or friend. We, as young Canadians, can clearly connect to his love of country and family and his adorable dogs Jagger, Mya and Kya.”

The 24-year-old Hamilton native was killed Oct. 22, 2014 when a gunman opened fire on him and other soldiers as they stood guard at the National War Memorial.

The gunman then stormed Parliament and was killed in a firefight inside the building.

The memorial ceremony at the Bronte Veterans Garden began with Senior Kindergarten student Henry Kantor handing Cirillo’s mother, Kathy, a bouquet of flowers.

“We promise to remember your son, Nathan,” said Henry as he presented the flowers.

Kathy could be seen choking back tears as she embraced the small child.

Those present also heard from Grade 8 student Savannah Arne, who eulogized Cirillo, calling him an animal lover, a dedicated soldier and a dedicated father to his young son, Marcus, who was also present at the ceremony.

“Cpl. Cirillo is someone I strive to be like and someone I look up to because of his courage, dedication, and caring nature, not just towards people around him, but people all over Canada and the world,” she Arne.

Grade 8 Student Melissa Arruda spoke about the gift soldiers give to society.

“Soldiers are courageous men and women, who see a future and a better world in which to live. They want to play an active part in bringing peace and justice to Canada and to citizens in countries around the world if called on to do so,” she said.

“Imagine leaving everyone and everything you’ve ever loved. All men and women who wear the uniform of our Armed Forces take that risk. Firstly, we honour Cpl. Nathan Cirillo because he freely offered himself to his country to protect us in peacetime and wartime.”

Arruda said Cirillo’s plaque within the Bronte Veterans Garden would not only help keep his memory alive, but would hopefully inspire future generations, who read his name, to learn about his actions and emulate his spirit.

Cirillo’s family then participated in the unveiling of the plaque with Cirillo’s son Marcus pulling away the bright red cloth that covered it.

With the unveiling complete, Cirillo’s sister, Nicole, addressed the students.

“On behalf of my family, I would like to express our complete gratitude towards honouring my brother, Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. His dedication and sacrifice to Canada will always be remembered because of people like you,” she said.

“I know Nathan would feel humbled and honoured by this presentation.”

Nicole said when her family was first approached about the plaque and tribute they were surprised to learn students were behind the undertaking.

“Please know that as a family suffering a loss, remembering a loved one is very important and knowing there is a place for families to visit for years to come is very comforting,” she said.

“Thank you, Mr. John MacPhail (St. Dominic’s history teacher) and the students of St. Dominic School for honouring and remembering the fallen soldiers of our wonderful country. Your patriotism and efforts are truly heartwarming. With young people like the students of St. Dominic’s, our country’s future is in good hands.”

For several years, Grade 7 students from St. Dominic have been exchanging letters and posters with the families of Canada’s fallen soldiers and veterans.

Tributes to these soldiers were erected in the veterans’ garden after the students made strong connections with these families.

The Bronte Veterans’ Garden was created in 2011, with the support of the Town of Oakville, after St. Dominic students made the case for the memorial to Ward 1 Town Councillor Ralph Robinson.

Additional garden enhancements, including a flagpole, were made possible through funding from the Royal Canadian Legion Branch General Chris Vokes Branch 486, Bronte; Ward Funeral Home; Kopriva Funeral Home; and MEDIchair Halton.

The 1.5-metre semi-circular pathway, benches, and plaques were funded in part by St. Dominic Catholic Elementary School; a grant from the Ontario Ministry of Education; and Finewood Products/Starfleet Construction.

Maybe we should send these kids to Ottawa and have a chat with JT? It seems they get it and I believe they would really know how to 'teach' the former teacher.
