Fury over Google listing Khadr as a ‘Canadian soldier’ | Toronto Sun
Ernest “Smokey” Smith was the last living Canadian recipient of the hallowed Victoria Cross.
The British Columbia native won the medal for action on a rainy night in October 1944 on Italy’s Savio River.
Smith — armed with just a Tommy gun and an anti-tank gun — single-handedly knocked out a Panzer tank, killed a slew of Nazis, held off a force of 30 more while protecting a wounded comrade.
But if Smith looked at Google today, he would surely be rolling in his grave.
