'Fluke' kills 40th Canadian
By Jane ARMSTRONG and Dawn WALTON with reports from Gloria Galloway and Canadian Press, Page A10
Canada's latest casualty in Afghanistan is being blamed on a "lucky" enemy that planted a roadside bomb that struck an armoured vehicle over the weekend and, in an apparent "fluke," killed one occupant.
Trooper Mark Andrew WILSON, who was with the Royal Canadian Dragoons based at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, Ontario, died Saturday while on an early morning patrol. He is the 40th Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan since 2002.
He was a married father of two who hailed from London, Ontario
"There is no doubt that Trooper WILSON represented the best of our military and our country," Prime Minister Stephen Harper said yesterday in a statement. "His family and Friends can be proud of the fact that this courageous Canadian sacrificed his life for a greater cause."
Trooper WILSON was a gunner riding in a Nyala (RG-31) armoured vehicle that was preparing to retrieve a group of soldiers who had spent the previous night securing an area in the Panjwai district, known for insurgent attacks.
The improvised explosive device was set off on a roadway less than one kilometre from where Sergeant Craig GILLAM and Corporal Robert MITCHELL, also of the Royal Canadian Dragoons, were ambushed last week. Both died while they were guarding a road-building crew.
"Today we are all mourning the loss of a brother in arms and a good soldier," Colonel Fred Lewis, deputy commander of Canada's Task Force in Afghanistan, told reporters.
The Nyala (RG-31) is specifically designed to protect its occupants from explosions caused by roadside bombs.
"In this particular case, I think the enemy got a bit lucky," Col. Lewis said.
"This is the first time something like this has happened. Is it a fluke? Perhaps. It doesn't happen very often. The troops have superb confidence in this vehicle."
He described the vehicle as providing good protection for Canadian troops, but added that the enemy is also perfectly capable of building bigger bombs.
Yesterday, federal Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor echoed those sentiments. Nothing, he said, is bulletproof.
"We don't know why one soldier was killed in this vehicle. Nobody else was injured. So there is something peculiar about that vehicle or the explosive and we have to find out what it is," Mr. O'Connor said.
"They are built to deal with mines but sometimes the Taliban put four anti-tank mines together. That is a terrific blast. So somehow they were lucky and we were unlucky and one of our soldiers got killed," he said.
But at a time when Canadians far away from a war zone were celebrating Thanksgiving, the latest death hit home hard. Dozens of Canadians used the holiday to write morale-boosting missives to Canada's troops through a Department of National Defence website.
