The Canadian Forces assessment of this country's military "needs" over the next two decades is in, and though it took a Freedom of Access to Information demand to become public, Canadians now know what they and their children are in for: Wars and rumours of war, stretching into the foreseeable future.

David Pugliese is a reporter for the Canwest Global newspaper organ, the Ottawa Citizen, and author of the Canadian bestseller, Canada's Secret Commandos: The Unauthorized Story of Joint Task Force Two, and more recently, 'Shadow Forces: Special Forces in the New Battle Against Terrorism.'

David Pugliese and Canada's rapidly evolving military in the first half.

And; the coming carnage of Canada's military adventurism abroad holds barely a candle to the number of Canadians killed and maimed on this country's highways and byways every day; and the holiday season is especially deadly.

B. C., famous for its mountainous roads and oceanside vistas is particularly dangerous, with more than 60,000 British Columbians killed or injured in auto crashes every year.

Jill Franklin is a B.C.- based author whose titles include: 'The Promise of Paradise,' 'Death Comes Dancing,' Drunk on the Divine,' and 'The Ultimate Risk.' She's also the author of 'The Auto Accident Survivor's Guide for British Columbia,' written following her own near death experience.

And; Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with all that's good to do in and around Victoria in the coming week.

But first, David Pugliese and the Canadian Forces' marching orders for a new century.
