First World War letters put a human face on the war that shaped us as a nation
The First World War saw about 75 million letters exchanged between the front lines and the 650,000 men serving in battle.
A hundred years later, most notes have vanished or are a distant, yellowed memory. The words are only just visible, and the photos are cloudy.
Carmichael, a resident of Port Alberni, B.C., and the author of “Tweets from the Trenches: Little True Stories of Life and Death on the Western Front,” says she wanted to find a way to link the past to the present because both her grandfathers served in the war.

To back up their claim they let a psychologist, Siri Helle, substantiate their story. She stated that: “Feeling unsafe does not mean that you are unsafe. We live in one of the safest countries in the world, that has never been safer than it is right now.”

Justin Trudeau recently played his favourite game: Going on foreign media and pretending that he opposes everything bad in the world.

It’s what he always does when he talks to foreign media. He acts as if he is the only thing standing between Canada and horrifically destructive ‘divisive’ politics.
