Shïte deal considering the majority of reg force P&D’s are volunteer, some CO’s never see the big picture of the benefits of civvy augmented bands.Had a band. The new CO ordered all civilian volunteers to turn in their kit, so the band was reduced to something like two pipers and two cadets.
Interesting that he was one of the first Pat’s as the majority of the original battalion were, well ex-pats.....This is a cracking tradition at the Ottawa Citizen, We Are the Dead, at 11am a name is spat out of a computer, the journalists then have till the end of that days working shift to find out everything they can about them, the project is now in it's 8th year. Here's a thread that details the search, the link at the bottom is the finished profile
We Are The Dead: George Jameson enlisted early in WW1, died at Ypres
In recent elections the NDP had been able to take advantage of the collapse of support for separatists in Quebec to offer themselves as an alternative vaguely socialist-themed party without the separatist baggage. They scooped up so many seats that Quebec became the core region of their support.Three surveys conducted over the last few weeks suggest that the NDP is in trouble in Quebec, where the party won 16 seats in the 2015 federal election. The Quebec contingent makes up the largest provincial grouping in the federal NDP caucus.
In terms of personal popularity for who would be the best PM, Singh is at 6% in Quebec, behind Trudeau (Liberal) at 44%, Scheer (Conservative) at 18%, and Bernier (People's Party) at 10%. Bernier's rating is worth noting, as the People's Party are only a few months old. See previous posts in this thread for more information on them.Three surveys conducted over the last few weeks suggest that the NDP is in trouble in Quebec, where the party won 16 seats in the 2015 federal election. The Quebec contingent makes up the largest provincial grouping in the federal NDP caucus.
The most recent four-week rolling poll from Nanos Research pegged NDP support in Quebec at just under 11 per cent. In a poll published last week, Mainstreet Research put it at nine per cent, while the Léger/Journal de Montréal survey published on Monday gave the New Democrats just eight per cent support in Quebec, ranking it in a distant fourth place.
The CBC are projecting that the NDP will likely win no seats in Quebec at the next election, and have a chance at only one.Nanos finds that just six per cent of Quebecers choose the former Ontario MPP as the best person to be prime minister, well behind the current occupant of the office, Justin Trudeau (44 per cent), Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer (18 per cent) and People's Party Leader Maxime Bernier (10 per cent).
Singh just barely edges out the new Bloc Québécois leader, Yves-François Blanchet (who isn't running for the job of prime minister), and Elizabeth May of the Greens.
The Liberals are projected to win all but one of the NDP's seats in Quebec.Regardless of how its support is distributed, the NDP would struggle to hold any seat in the province if its support dips into single digits. The CBC Poll Tracker currently projects the party is favoured to win no seats in Quebec and is in contention in only one: Alexandre Boulerice's riding of Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie on the island of Montreal.
Prior to becoming federal NDP leader, Jagmeet Singh was an NDP MPP in Ontario provincial politics, where he was almost unknown outside of party circles. He apparently appeals to party activists, but has made no impression on the public at large. He doesn't currently hold a seat in Ottawa. He is running in a by-election in Vancouver in what should be a safe seat for the NDP. However, it is by no means certain that he will win there. If he loses in that riding, the NDP will be going into a general election this autumn in an even more weakened position.If these trends hold, the NDP's rivals will be circling. The Poll Tracker suggests the Liberals are favoured to win all but one of the NDP's 16 seats in the province, but the Bloc is in contention in as many as six of them (primarily in and around Montreal) and the Conservatives in three (mostly in central Quebec).
Here's information about the nation anthem.A dim question for the Canucks...
