Gun registry dying with a whimper not a bang

And, after the Harper government's disgraceful decision not to recognize our last group of war dead (and the outrage voiced by most Canadians, including the families, about it), wonder what's going to happen this time: 26-year-old officer becomes the first Canadian woman yet to die in combat. Note: I know that many countries still bar female personnel from the front lines; after a ruling that the Canadian military is subject to our anti-discrimination laws, all combat-related positions were opened to women in the late eighties (see the chronology at the end of the article).
