Obviously, the answer to the question posed by "Peace and Environment News" on November 11th, 1992, was "NO, it is not a good idea to honor Canadian Vietnam war veterans". After all, there has been no honor given to them and now, thirteen years later, the Canadian government is rewriting history so that current generations do not even know there were Canadian soldiers in Vietnam.
November 11: Remembering Canada's Role in the Vietnam War
by Robin Collins, Peace and Environment News", November 11th, 1992
"The idea of Canadian complicity in the Vietnam war was once contrary to the customary mythology that "Americans fought and killed in Vietnam while Canadians opened their doors to conscientious objectors." But these days, as memories fade and Vietnam war revisionism is buoyed by the end of the Cold War, there are new calls for official government recognition of the estimated 10,000 Canadians who served in Indochina as mercenaries. There has been de facto recognition already as a result of increased visibility of these soldiers at Rememberance Day ceremonies but some want the government to establish monuments to honour Canadian Vietnam war veterans. Is this a good idea?"
