Highway 401, the section between the military base in Trenton and Toronto, has been disputably renamed "The Highway of Heroes" in honour of Canada’s fallen soldiers in Afghanistan. Crowds gather to pay tribute as Canadian soldiers' corpses – now numbering 106 – are transfered from Trenton to Toronto. Close to 20,000 Afghan deaths are estimated in the same war. Canada's recent deployment of warplanes over Afghanistan illustrate an extension of combat operations in spite of widespread opposition in Canada to the war.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
