    Sgt. John Faught, 44, of the 1st Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry based in Edmonton, was taking part in a foot patrol with Afghan soldiers near the town of Nakhoney in the volatile Panjwaii district, about 15 kilometres southwest of Kandahar city, when the device detonated.

    "He lost his life after a homemade bomb exploded. That's all the military is saying right now," the CBC's Derek Stoffel reported from Kandahar.

    "He was just simply walking — out greeting Afghans and the bomb exploded. That is how he died," Stoffel said. No one else was killed in the blast.

    Faught , originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont, "was a very conscientious and thorough section commander who always put the needs of his soldiers above his own," said Brig.-Gen. Daniel Menard. "I offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of our great fallen warrior."

    Faught's death brings to 139 Canadian soldiers and two civilians who have been killed in Canada's eight-year mission in Afghanistan

    Canadian soldier killed during weapons training

    CTV.ca News Staff

    Date: Sat. Feb. 13 2010 2:08 PM ET

    The body of the latest Canadian soldier killed in Afghanistan began the journey home Saturday after a solemn ramp ceremony at Kandahar Air Field.

    Cpl. Joshua Caleb Baker was killed in a training accident northeast of Kandahar City around 5 p.m. local time Friday. Four other soldiers were injured.

    The military has not released many details about Baker's death except to say it happened during a routine training exercise. An investigation into the incident is underway.

    "This type of training is normal for soldiers in theatre and essential in helping them maintain high levels of expertise," Brig. Gen. Daniel Menard said.

    Baker, 24, was serving with the Loyal Edmonton Regiment.

    Menard said Baker had a laugh that lightened any situation.

    "Joshua had a laugh rumoured to cure cancer," he said. "No matter where you were or how down you got, his laugh would find your ears and bring a smile to your face."

    Baker, from Edmonton, was "an extremely positive, passionate" person, Menard said.

    "He had a deep love for his family and worried constantly about them."

    The injured soldiers were taken by helicopter to the medical facility at Kandahar Airfield. They are in stable condition, the Department of National Defence said in a statement. Their names will not be released.

    Baker's repatriation ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. Monday at CFB Trenton. The ceremony will be followed by a cavalcade west along the stretch of Highway 401 called the Highway of Heroes.

    In offering his condolences to Baker's family, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Baker "served valiantly in order to build a better future for Afghanistan."

    Defence Minister Peter MacKay and Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean issued similar statements.

    Baker's loss will be honoured by a sustained effort "to bring freedom, democracy and respect for human rights and the rule of law to Afghanistan," MacKay said.

    He also wished the injured soldiers a speedy recovery.

    Jean said she was "deeply saddened" by the loss of Baker, who "merits our wholehearted admiration."

    Baker is the second Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan this year, and the 140th killed during Canada's eight-year mission in the country.

    A Canadian soldier died in an Edmonton hospital Saturday as a result of injuries sustained in Afghanistan two weeks prior, the Canadian Forces announced Monday.

    Cpl. Darren James Fitzpatrick, a 21-year-old infantryman and member of the 3rd Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, was critically wounded by an improvised explosive device on March 6.

    He died surrounded by family at the University of Alberta Hospital.

    Fitzpatrick had been transferred from the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany to the Edmonton hospital on Friday.

    He was wounded by the explosive device during a dismounted patrol 25 kilometres west of Kandahar City in Zharey district, the military said.

    Defence Minister Peter MacKay expressed his condolences in a statement.

    "I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Corporal Darren James Fitzpatrick, a courageous Canadian soldier who died Saturday after being wounded in Afghanistan during a patrol March 6. Our thoughts are very much with you during this difficult time," he said.

    "Cpl. Fitzpatrick gave his life while providing hope to Afghans for a brighter future. We will continue to work with our Afghan and international partners to ensure his sacrifice will not be forgotten."

    Canada has lost 141 soldiers since the Afghanistan mission began in 2002.

    Date: Sun. Apr. 11 2010 3:38 PM ET

    A Canadian soldier has been killed by an improvised explosive device while on foot patrol in the Dand district of Afghanistan.

    Pte. Tyler William Todd, 26, was killed at approximately 7:30 a.m. Sunday near the town of Belanday, which is about eight kilometres southwest of Kandahar city.

    Another soldier, whose name was not released, was wounded in the blast.

    Todd was from Kitchener, Ont., but was serving with the 1st Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry based in Edmonton.

    Brig.-Gen. Daniel Menard, the commander of Canadian troops in Afghanistan, said Todd was on a routine patrol, speaking to local villagers.

    "The patrol was part of the battle group's effort to learn more about the village's people and their needs," Menard said.

    Menard paid tribute to Todd, saying he died doing a job he loved with his best friends.

    "He never allowed the small things to get to him and was often the rock upon which his comrades depended," Menard said. "His enthusiasm and strong will was an inspiration to his platoon."

    Prime Minister Stephen Harper offered his condolences to Todd's family and friends.

    "The thoughts of an entire country are with you in this most difficult time. I also hope for the quick and full recovery of the other Canadian soldier injured in the same incident," he said in a statement.

    "Canada is grateful for Private Tyler William Todd's sacrifice. We are all saddened by this loss."

    The Prime Minister said Todd's death did not diminish his government's commitment to the mission. Canadian troops are scheduled to pull out of Afghanistan next year.

    "The courage demonstrated by the Canadian Forces in this mission speaks to their dedication of creating a better future for the Afghan people. Canada's commitment to this goal is not diminished by this incident."

    In the past, the Belanday region had been heavily travelled by Taliban militants who staged attacks on the village and the outskirts of Kandahar City from surrounding grape and wheat fields.

    Pte. Patrick Lormand, 21, was killed in Sept. 2009 by an IED blast while on patrol around the town.

    But Belanday is now considered the western tip of a security bubble that extends through the Dand district and the Canadians hoped to expand the region of security around the town.

    Last November, the Canadian battle group established a permanent presence in Belanday, setting up a platoon house there as part of an experiment by military brass to have troops leave their fortified bases and live among the population.

    It was lauded as a success at NATO headquarters and even praised by U.S. generals, as the Canadian soldiers turned the town from a no-go zone into an oasis of calm in Taliban territory.

    Just a few weeks ago, Canadian troops and Afghan soldiers swept an area just south of Belanday and had been assured by locals that the Taliban had fled the area.

    Todd's death brings to 142 the total number of Canadian soldiers killed in Afghanistan since the mission began.

    Petty Officer Second Class Craig Blake, 37, died Monday after an improvised explosive device detonated during an operation about 25 kilometres southwest of Kandahar City at 4:40 p.m. Kandahar time. Blake is a Simcoe, Ont. native. The town's radio station, CD 98.9, reports Blake was married with two children. He was on his first tour of Afghanistan and had arrived just a few weeks ago.

    In a prepared statement, Brig.-Gen Dan Menard said Blake was a former navy diver who was "incredibly fit, with a backbone of steel." He said Blake was "a compassionate and approachable leader whose positive attitude motivated other soldiers to achieve great results."

    Blake is the 143 Canadian to die during the Afghan mission, which began in 2002. His body will be flown home Wednesday.

    "On behalf of all soldiers, airmen, airwomen, sailors and special operators of Joint Task Force Afghanistan, I offer my sincere condolences to his friends and family," Menard said.

    In a statement, the Department of Defence also offered its condolences. "We are all thinking of the family and friends of our Canadian fallen comrade during this sad time. The commitment and sacrifice of our military and their loved ones are helping to make a difference in the lives of the people of Kandahar Province," the statement said.-

    I had the privilege of having Col. Geoff Parker as my reviewing officer back when I was a cadet. He was a well spoken man and the most memorable of any of my ROs.

    He will be missed by many.

    RIP sir.

    I would like to send my thoughts and prayers out to the family of Private Kevin Thomas McKay who was raised in Oro, and Barrie and where his family remains. There is a ceremony being held tomorrow at our local armoury in honour of Private McKay. He attended my former high school, and flags in Barrie are lowered to half mast in his honour. Their are signs posted for him around town as well. It's great to see the support, but sad as well. It was pretty devastating that it was only 2 days before coming back home. BZ Kevin! You deserve all the respect. I beleive flags will remain at half mast tomorrow as he arrives home.

    RIP Kevin.

    Rest in Peace troops.

    My sincerest condolences go out to the family, friends, and comrades of the fallen.
    Pain is temporary. Pride is eternal.

    I was talking to a friend the other day who was at the funeral. The support from the community was intense. He wasn't able to get into the funeral home because there where so many people. As well the entire route from the funeral home and church was completely lined with people. More that what was in North Bay, considering that New Liskard is only 10,000 people.
