| A good portrayal of a bad day
Oddly enough, I saw this production on a videotape bought at a garage sale. Somehow I had missed it when it first was on CBC. This is one of the best things they've done and it's a pity these productions aren't recycled more. It was done 11 years ago but is still pertinent with high production standards. I think they should have been more specific. For example, the Essex-Kent Scottish (at that time from Windsor and Chatham Ontario)was one of the key regiments involved. Yet there is no mention of them or the other two main regiments (from Winnipeg and from Quebec I believe.)There also was nothing specific about the late Col. Merrit who won the VC at Dieppe and who, in his own right, was quite a colourful character. The movie also does not show the motorized assault vehicles. They were disabled when the stones on the beach jammed their treads and pictures taken after the attack show large numbers of them abandoned. But all in all it's a satisfactory testament to a tragic day in Canadian military history.

Would You Watch 'Crazy Rich Avengers'?

Captain Marvel star Gemma Chan would ... so she created the ultimate Crazy Rich Asians crossover, and even assigned Avengers roles to co-stars like Henry Golding.
