Film honours Canada's fallen

November 10th, 2010.

By Peter Worthington

http://www.torontosun.com/news/columnists/peter_worthington/2010/11/10/16075311.html

"On this Remembrance Day, at Hammerson Hall in Mississauga, one of the more remarkable films of Canada’s role in the Afghanistan war will be shown — If I Should Fall, produced by Paul Culliton of the Joint Media Group, of London , Ont.

Ostensibly dedicated to Trooper Marc Diab of the Royal Canadian Dragoons (RCD), killed by an improvised explosive device (IED) on March 8, 2009, the film honours all Canada’s fallen, and in the process gives a clearer, more defined picture of Canada’s role in Afghanistan than anything shown on the CBC or elsewhere."
