Show support for our Troops sign now

This is a petition to show how Canadians support our troops.



"Calgary city council voted against putting yellow "Support our Troops" ribbons on city vehicles after a heated debate Monday night.


Instead, council voted to look into selling the ribbons to raise money for military families.

Just one month ago, Toronto's decision to ban the stickers from some vehicles caused an uproar before it was eventually reversed by council.

Last week, Alderman Ric McIver brought forward a proposal to put the ribbon-shaped Support our Troops emblems on Calgary's vehicles.

A local entrepreneur was willing to donate 5,000 of the stickers, according to media reports.

But the plan was panned by Mayor Dave Bronconnier who said that using the stickers would give little tangible support to troops overseas and the city should instead do something practical."

We believe that this is just plain WRONG.

Putting on the stickers is NOT giving "little tangible support to troops"... it is showing how much we SUPPORT our Troops. There IS a difference between supporting our Brothers and Sisters...and supporting any particular MISSION. Our Troops CHOOSE to serve to protect Canada's interests..they do NOT CHOOSE in what way. Our POLITICIANS do. If you don't support a mission, BLAME the decision makers, and elect other ones, but STOP BLAMING the people who lay their lives on the line to protect Freedom around the world and here at home. It is time to recognize that there is a HUGE DIFFERENCE between the two.

We submit that the stickers do indeed show much TANGIBLE support to troops overseas, by reminding their FAMILIES that WE CARE and are behind their family members' decision to serve our Great Free Country.

So please sign this petition if you agree, and send the link to all of your friends. Together we can turn a ripple in a pond into a Tsunami of support.

We Thank You,

Frank N.Boosmara (New Brunswick)
Franky Alain (Quebec)
Sean Delaney (Quebec)
Gerald Koch (Manitoba)
Tina Shea (PEI)
Michael Harrington (Ontario)
Nancy Dickey ( Ontario)
Ericka Woodworth (Nova Scotia)
Terry Power (Brador and NFL)
Koty Lee Cosh (Sask.)
Angie Koch (Alberta )
Marci-Jo Dahlseide Muir ( B.C.)
and counting...

We believe in our troops and WE WILL BE HERE...

    war is an ugly thing. But it's not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which think nothing is worth war is much worse. A person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight: nothing he cares about more
