Messages to the Canadian Troops

Thank you and God bless and protect you all.
Glenn Abbott, Montreal

We will show the world that Canada has well trained soldiers too. Be very careful over there. I am sure that you will be able to do more than anyone to get rid of those terrorists. I hope too that our governemt will open their eyes and provide our forces with the best equipment there is to protect our troops.
Serge Vigneault

Good luck and safe home, from a South African in Cape Town, the one city that gives Vancouver major competition in terms of being the Most Beautiful City in the World.
Lesley Stuart

Everyone here at Air Canada hopes you have every success with the task at hand.
The guys on the ramp at YYC

You are brave, braver than I would be when faced with such a stupid and dangerous task. Godspeed, you quixotic riders on the waves. Drink plenty, smoke more, and let's hope six months sees you back home here with us with as little blood on your hands as possible.
Richard Newman

As a Canadian living and working in New York City, I have seen first hand the devastation that this city has been through. It therefore makes me proud that we as a country are getting involved to root out this threat to the free, open and democratic life we all cherish.
Michael Mueller

As my husband and I were reviewing our vacation options for next summer, I heard about Canadian troops being deployed to the Middle East to assist in Operation Enduring Freedom. I immediately knew where we would spend our next vacation. Forget France, forget Italy and forget Greece. We're headed to Alberta and Vancouver. I thought it would be one very small way that we could say thank you to Canada.
Amy and Patrick Newton, New Jersey

Once terrorism is exported, it becomes the world's fight. God bless you and return home safe.
Rit and Lenore Verret, Connecticut

Canada is a great country and Canada's soldiers are front-line defenders of its population. I wish you all the best of luck and the strength to carry on in the most difficult of times.
Nick Carthigaser

These words have as much meaning now as they did then: "Geography has made us neighbours. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners, and necessity has made us allies" (John F. Kennedy, May 17, 1961).
Jeremy McConnell

Best wishes for a swift victory and safe return.
Sahir Khan

My grandfather was a veteran from the Second World, War and his experiences changed him and our family forever. We never can take our freedom for granted.
Alison Ahenakew
