Stand by for the wailing...

And gnashing of teeth... from the Opposition benches...

A Canadian soldier died Sunday and four others were injured when their armoured vehicle hit a roadside bomb in southern Afghanistan.

The military identified the dead soldier as Jonathan Dion, 27, of Val D'Or, Que. He was based in Valcartier, Que.
He will be remembered.

In 1996, with the help of others working in the same area, they formed the Canadian Agriculture Injury Surveillance Program. (CAISP) The team's mandate was to look at the occurrence of work-related farm injuries, which resulted in death specifically between the year's 1991 and 1995.

By looking at records and statistics from a number of different agencies, CAISP reported a total of 503 deaths on the farm in that time period.

Farm injuries are the fourth leading cause of death by occupation in Canada.
