The decision not to fly the Canadian Flag at half mast can only mean one thing. The Canadian government expects many more casualties in the war in Afghanistan. Think about it.
All were buried with full military honours, with flags draped over their coffins, and with the flags at Department of National Defence headquarters in Ottawa, and at their local bases lowered to half-mast in the time-honoured tradition for fallen warriors.
