LETTERS: Hyena Road

Revelation and reverence to all who proudly support and honour the Poppy and Flanders Fields.

Thank you Penticton Landmark 7 Cinemas, Paul Gross and Canada for the most memorable Remembrance Day I have ever observed.

Hyena Road opened my eyes and impacted my being as to Canada’s role in the Afghanistan conflict — the highs and lows of military life and sacrifice.  Canada’s Paul Gross stands head and shoulders with George Lucas and Steven Spielberg for his total creativity, contribution and commitment to quality cinema. I have always respected our nation and our military. Hyena Road should be a mandatory viewing in Grades 11 and 12, plus every college and university.

Revelation and reverence to all who proudly support and honour the Poppy and Flanders Fields.

James Ludvigson
