    These and other stories were covered by the Canadian Press while I was in Canada a few weeks a go. I really like the Canadian Press. They give you the data, and not afraid to show some emotion, as in upset about a death or happy about someone living. They also have and deliver good natured stories about their troops in Iraq and Afganistan.
