It’s our house. It’s on a hill. And there’s a tower. And it’s named for the idea, the concept and notion of peace. And it’s open to all of us. Times change, but that never has, let’s keep our heads and ensure that it never will.

Canada has had a difficult week after the shooting attack of a Canadian soldier on Parliament Hill and the death of another soldier in Quebec and I thought the video today was worth sharing.
Rick Mercer is a Canadian comedian, actor and writer and a native of St. John’s, Nfld. He’s a political satirist and host of The Rick Mercer Report which airs on the national broadcaster CBC. Rick began his television career in 1993 as one of the creators, performers, and writers on the parody weekly news show This Hour Has 22 Min.

Each week Rick shares one of his “rants” and he usually hits the nail on the head with his commentary.
