sinesofinsanity: For use when driving (Sky)
[personal profile] sinesofinsanity
Normally I really like The Trews. But after this song, because I didn't get into an accident (although I missed my exit), I also love them patriotically. The song is called Highway of Heroes, after the stretch of highway from CFB Trenton to Toronto, which is the last journey of fallen Canadian soldiers before they are sent by civilian transportation to their hometowns. Out of respect, people stand on the overpasses and along the side of the highway holding Canada flags and other symbols of support. My family was driving home from Kingston last Christmas and were about an hour ahead of the convoy carrying four soldiers and a Calgary Herald Journalist; people were already lined up on the freezing bridges.

According to the Trews Wikipedia page: "The newest single, Highway Of Heroes, was inspired by the 2006 death of Capt. Nichola Goddard, the first Canadian female soldier killed in Afghanistan. ... The song is available on iTunes ( (Canada only), and proceeds from the song are going to Canadian Hero Fund, a charity that provides academic scholarships to the spouses and children of soldiers killed in combat."
