Fox News Commentator Cancels Edmonton Visit

I'm sure you've all seen the lovely video from Fox by now. After 8 years and 116 (to date) deaths in Afghanistan facing armed insurgents, booby traps, ambush's and suicide bombers the brave people at Fox news decided to ridicule Canadian Soldiers for 'taking a break.' The reality is we're not taking a break, we're leaving - Canada's mission in Afghanistan will soon be over.

Fox News has now apologized for the comments and one of the commentators, Doung Benson, has cancelled an April 2-5 appearance at the Comic Strip in Edmonton. Apparently he needed a break.

Edmonton, by the way, happens to be where Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry is based.
