Prophecy

Dear Editor,

Re: James Parry’s column ‘The Great War’ starring Justin Trudeau and Glen Bowser, assisted by Roy Elliott, I played a farmer loading a hay wagon not a priest, but thanks anyhow James.

An interesting fact, not generally known, is the extras playing the soldiers were actually descendants of soldiers killed in The Great War. One of Trudeau’s lines (as Major Papineau) was, “One of these days, I will be Prime Minister of Canada.”

How prophetic was that (in 2008)?

Unfortunately, Papineau was killed before the war ended.
