Canadians making a difference

"Canadians concerned about the mission to Afghanistan should meet Haji Baran Khaksar, the government leader of one of the most violent places in Afghanistan: the Panjwaii district west of Kandahar City.

"Hardly a day goes by without the crack of gunfire or the muffled boom of a roadside bomb either here or in the neighbouring district of Zhari.

"Yet, Mr. Khaksar says life is getting better for Afghans -- and he gives a lot of the credit to Canadian soldiers stationed here."

And thank you, Cpl. Arnal, for making the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. May God be with you and your family.
