So technically this next part involves skipping ahead in the section of the grand meeting between the Prime Minister and the CDS. The way the scene plays out in the novel goes: 1) Bishop arrives at the Langevin Block and sneers contemptuously at the politicians. 2) Bishop presents the facts of the uprising and his … Continue reading 64-The Weasels Attack!
So I was just thinking...there's been so much action in the last few chapters, it would be nice to have a quick exposition passage to let the reader get caught up... ...yeah, it's another briefing. General Bishop's assistant flipped on a projector. "Prime minister, ladies and gentlemen, the Canadian Forces are deploying the appropriate units … Continue reading 63-The Plan
Things are...getting tense. I wrote a few weeks ago about the grim discovery of unmarked graves on the grounds of an infamous Residential School in Kamloops BC. While the investigations are ongoing and will probably take years to yield results, the remains of two hundred a fifteen children (some as young as three) were found … Continue reading Tensions
Okay it's taken a combination of typing stuff on my phone and installing multiple browsers and apps until I found something that works, but I've done it. The laptop has access to the blog once more. Don't know how long it will last, but it's working and I finally managed to get the next Deconstruction … Continue reading Update-We’re moving again!
The North Side entrance is one of the main ways into the old NDHQ building. It's opens on a busy street with several bus routes stopping right outside the doors, that is frequently busy with pedestrian traffic (although this is usually people going to the Rideau Centre shopping mall across the street). Heading west from … Continue reading 62-“Lesser”
Alright, so I haven’t posted anything in the last few weeks. Sorry about that. Part of this is my work schedule. Summer RST kicked in early and hard, and because of COVID the powers that be have been dispersing courses all over the Province to reduce risk. This has had the effect of turning me … Continue reading Blog Update. We’re having technical issues…
***Content Note: This post will be discussing the First Nations Residential School system in Canada, specifically the Kamloops Indian Residential School and the recent discovery of unmarked graves on the school property. This will include issues of child abuse, neglect, and the hypocrisy that can make these things possible. I won't be going into graphic … Continue reading We can’t let this go…
So we're now getting introduced to a new character who seems like he should be pretty relevant for the final half of the novel, but will only be with us for a couple of scenes. In this respect, his role will mostly be to endorse the sheer awesomeness of Bland's preferred characters with a special … Continue reading 61-War machine springs to life
Wow! So the invasion and occupation of Montreal really ballooned out into something, didn't it? It's something I've found is a hard balance to strike as I write this blog. On one hand, I don't want to get bogged down in the minute details of every last scene in this awful novel. On the other … Continue reading 60-Taking in all the wrong
So things have gotten pretty chaotic around here. A lot more so than most summers. I should be getting the next post in the deconstruction up soon, but I wanted to at least let you guys know what's happening around here. Right now, we're entering RST (Reserve Summer Training) which would normally have me packing … Continue reading Where I’m at…
