Canada Remembers


 
The sun broke through on our walk this morning in the Pacific Spirit Park illuminating these beautiful young maple leaves as we remember Sub.Lt. Abbigail Cowbrough and her five co-Canadian Armed Forces crew members, Sub-Lieutenant Matthew Pyke, Master Corporal Matthew Cousins, Captain Maxime Miron-Morin, Captain Kevin Hagen and Captain Brenden Ian MacDonald, all lost when their helicopter came down in the Ionian sea a year ago today.
 

 
Only eleven days previously Sub.Lt. Cowborough had been playing Amazing Graze on the deck of their ship HMCS Fredericton to honor all those murdered in the mass shooting in her home Province of Nova Scotia.

  1. Thank you for this. With all the bad news in the world we often forget about the losses in our own country. I lost a friend in the Nova Scotia mass shooting and those two days will always be etched in my memory. I did, however, forget about about the tragic helicopter accident that took place a little more than a week later. Planting those trees is a lovely tribute to those five crew members.
