Re: Canadian soldier killed in accidental shooting in AfghanistanMar 7th, 2007
Everyone was led to the "trough" by the always "implying" CBC....in their article which said nothing about the cause of the death...
Reuters could care less apparently.... and CTV has already reported the source of the gunfire...
Canadian soldier killed in Afghanistan - CTV

OTTAWA, March 6 (Reuters) - A Canadian soldier taking part in an offensive against Taliban militants in southern Afghanistan was killed on Tuesday and unconfirmed reports say he may have been accidentally shot by one of his colleagues, CTV television said.
No one was immediately available for comment at the Defence Department. If the report is confirmed it would be the 45th soldier Canada has lost in Afghanistan since sending troops to the war-torn country in 2002.
Canadian soldiers are taking part in a NATO offensive against the Taliban that began on Tuesday.
Colleague is a nicer way than saying "another Canadian Soldier"
