“Lieutenant-Colonel Samuel Sharpe was one of two Canadian MPs who died as a result of his service during the First World War.  But, unlike the other Member of Parliament, Lieutenant-Colonel George Baker, who was killed at the Battle of Ypres in 1916, Lt.-Col Sharpe wasn’t remembered with a statue in Parliament.  The difference is, he didn’t die in combat.”

An interesting story.  Attitudes have evolved since LCol Sharpe’s case was first arbitrated.  If you agree with the issue of the plaque described in the attached link, you might consider letting your local MP know:  https://www.theglobeandmail.com/politics/article-parliament-to-decide-whether-to-honour-mp-also-a-lieutenant-colonel/
