Death of Canadian

The news is covering Peter Jennings death fairly heavily. Jenning died of lung cancer yesterday at the age of 67.

One Canadian's death you won't hear about is Ernest "Smoky" Smith. Smoky is the last Canadian soldier to receive the Victoria Cross, England's highest honor. He was 91. Smoky was a colorful character much like D-Day Vet Ralph Kelly.
