August IInd, MMXV
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
With a Federal Election writ dropped by the His Excellency The Right Honourable The Governor General David Johnston, LL.B., LL.B., AB., C.C., C.M.M., C.O.M., C.D. on behalf of Her Majesty's Government, we now are in an election that is XI (11) weeks in length rather than IV (4) or V (5.) In other words a real dogfight in which political opponents in this new CCCXXXVIII (338) seat parliament will try to "mow eachother down politically." So speaking of mowing, who better than Senator Chuck Grassley of The Hawkeye State of Iowa to review the matter of military service by students. As The Governor General Of/De The Dominion Of Canada is after all the Military Commander-In Chief of Canada's Armed Forces. Three Iowans have done their state proud as they have been accepted into the U.S. Air Force Academy, a very prestigious honor indeed & the Senator is showing how pleased he is about that, as I am sure many citizens of Iowa are.
"Admission to the service academies is a highly competitive & a great honor. Students work very hard to earn this kind of opportunity. I wish Mark, Jean, & Yair well & thank them for their commitment to serve our nation."
