I know that with the strife and uncertainty in the Middle East, there has been talk in the good old U.S. of A. about reinstating the draft. There has been a lot of public outcry over this, and President Bush has stated publicly that there will be not be a draft in the U.S.. In Canada, a little known fact is that we have had a draft every year in June for over 40 years, and now it is to be cancelled. I sympathize with the American public, but in Canada, we need "The Draft". I wish both sides concerned would get off of their "ego-constructed pinnacles", show some humility, and reach an agreement. The future of some fine, talented young men, depends on them. Therefore, for Canada, I say, "Reinstate the Draft"!!!
