Canada is a marvelous multi cultural country where sensitivity to newcomers is part of the urban personality, but a discussion about cancelling the air show because it reminds some new immigrants of war is unsupportable.
My children absolutely loved the air show. They watched it on Sunday from the CNE and considered it a demonstration of courage and teamwork while inspiring awe for the pilots and their crew who work so hard to become so skilled at flying. So many children dream of becoming pilots and flying planes and the air show is an inspiration to those children and their parents who watch in wonder the skill and bravery on display. We know personally two Air Force pilots and they are examples of the best Canada has to offer.
