The Canadian Army might be small but they sure are professional and they have quite a reputation to boot. Even we Americans are aware of their courage at places like Vimy Ridge, Normandy, Korea, etc
Books, academic studies and official military histories have been written about the U.S. operations. Their exploits have been celebrated; they have grown into legends. But like all of JTF2’s work at home and abroad, Canada’s six-month contribution to the invasion of Afghanistan has remained a state secret. www.thestar.com...

That is entirely incorrect. Only the canadian sheeple still bow down to the queen.
Real Canadians are angry about the lack of true democracy, it doesn't matter what language you speak.
The Canada Act 1982 (1982 c. 11) is an Act of Parliament passed by the British Parliament that ended all remaining dependence of Canada on the United Kingdom, by a process known as "patriation". It includes the text of the Constitution Act, 1982, in both of Canada's official languages, in Schedule B, and a translation of the main body into French in Schedule A, making it the first British Act of Parliament since the Middle Ages to be passed in the French language.
While the Canada Act 1982 received Royal Assent on March 29, 1982 in London, it was not until the Queen came to Canada that the Constitution Act, 1982, its Canadian equivalent, was proclaimed by letters patent as a statutory instrument by the Queen during her presence in Canada.
The Constitution Act, 1982 was signed into law by Elizabeth II as Queen of Canada on April 17, 1982 on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. Queen Elizabeth's constitutional powers over Canada were not affected by the Act, and she remains Queen and Head of State of Canada. Canada has complete sovereignty as an independent country and the Queen's role as monarch of Canada is separate from her role as the British monarch or the monarch of any of the other Commonwealth realms.

I wonder if Her Majesty the Queen of England would have any power to stop the process of separation if that should happen......
