Flip-flop alert!

All we hear from Harper, Hillier and Junior McKay is “support the troops”. Well here’s a heart-warming story of a Montreal group that is trying to do just that, having put together over 1,700 care packages for our men and women serving in Afghanistan.

And a grateful Canadian Forces’ response?

“Citing security concerns and a lack of space on transport aircraft, the Canadian Forces informed the members of the Roxboro Legion, who spearheaded the drive, that it cannot accept the packages. Parcels must be addressed to a specific soldier, the military said, and not "Any CF member."”
Bet that policy is changed as soon as it hits Question Period tomorrow!
