A special report by 2 journalists embedded with Alpha Company of the First Princess Patricia's Light Infantry Battle Group puts human faces to the peacekeeping effort in Afghanistan. It's good to know that our troops stationed there will soon have a taste of home

Let me on survivor!!!
Oh the lack of justice! Canadians make up 10% of the Survivor audience and yet the show doesn't want to allow canadians to be on the show. This young courageous man
wants to change the rules, and he thinks he qualifies to be a good survivor
. Because after all 'Canadians live in igloos 50% of the year, so we're perfect for outdoor survival reality-tv shows '.
So he's on a crusade to be the first canadian citizen on the show, and ask people to sign his petition

New Canadian music
is infiltrating your culture with its neo-retro ways
, and you may not even know it! Hot Hot Heat
is too dance-rocky for it's own good, Joy Division-loving the Stills
are constantly mistaken for New Yorkers (thanks to touring with Interpol), and certainly Stirling
are too epic to be anything but Cure-loving Brits! Watch out for the seditiously warm synth-pop of Stars
and the society-destroying rock-folk of lesbian siblings Tegan and Sara
. While you're at it, keep tabs on Toronto super-supergroup Broken Social Scene
and the quirky, danceable girl-rawk of Metric
. This is the cell of the retro rock revolution you really need to pay attention to. The Strokes and their ilk have nothing on the Canucks.

Canadians fuzzy on concept of left and right.
A new poll suggests that three quarters of Canadians have trouble telling political left from right. Sort of makes me wonder why voter turnout is higher in Canada than the U.S.. Canadians are also hard to pin down politically, as polls suggests they generally want less taxes and
more government spending.
