A Canadian soldier has died in Afghanistan after insurgents attacked a remote outpost in the volatile Panjwaii district. It's the second death in three days.

Master Cpl. Erin Doyle was killed early Monday in the attack.

A second soldier was injured and taken to the multinational hospital at Kandahar Airfield, where the bulk of Canada's troops are based.

Another Canadian soldier, Master Cpl. Josh Roberts, was killed during a firefight with insurgents on the weekend. Private security personnel were also in the area, and the Canadian military is investigating any possibility of friendly fire.

Doyle is the 90th Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan since 2002. A diplomat has also been killed.

More to come...

Siiigh, again...

Condolences to the family, colleagues and friends of the fallen, hopes for a speedy recovery for the injured....   :salute:

Message from Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean, Governor General and Commander-in-Chief of Canada, on the death of Master Corporal Erin Doyle:  "Canada lost another brave soldier today. The entire country shares this pain and mourns this terrible loss.  Master Corporal Erin Doyle of the 3rd Battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry and attached to the 2nd Battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry Battle Group and his fellow soldiers were protecting their combat outpost during an attack. Risking his own life, he was there to protect the people of Kandahar. We salute his dedication and generosity, and our thoughts and gratitude are also with the soldier who was wounded.  My husband, Jean-Daniel Lafond, and I join all Canadians in expressing our heartfelt condolences to MCpl Doyle’s family and friends, and in lending our support to all his comrades who continue to carry out their mission to establish the security and stability needed for human development in Afghanistan."

STATEMENT BY THE PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA ON THE DEATH OF MASTER CORPORAL ERIN DOYLE:  "I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Master Corporal Erin Doyle, who died in Afghanistan late last night. I would also like to extend my heartfelt wishes for a prompt recovery to the Canadian soldier who was injured in the same incident. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their loved ones during this very difficult time.  Master Corporal Doyle was killed in the Panjwayi District of Afghanistan when the combat outpost his unit was protecting was attacked by insurgents with rocket propelled grenades and small arms fire.  Master Corporal Doyle was part of a noble mission that is helping create the conditions needed for security, development and the rule of law to take root in Afghanistan. This is a challenging mission, but we stand proudly in support of our brave men and women in uniform who, with our allies, are working to bring stability to a war torn country.  He was an exceptional Canadian and courageous soldier who died while bravely serving his country.  He will be remembered with the utmost gratitude and respect of this nation.”

Note to any Taliban and AQ personnel on the Form:  ALL SUICIDE VESTS AND EXPLOSIVE DEVICES MUST BE TESTED TO INSURE THEY WORK BEFORE GOING AFTER A TARGET.

This is a measure to save any embarrassment that may occur when your explosive device, does not function as it is intended to.

It has come to my attention that these measures are not being followed, so for all Taliban; please refer to the above.

Thank you for your cooperation

Statement
Statement by the Minister of National Defence on the death of Master Corporal Erin Doyle
NR–08.049 - August 11, 2008

OTTAWA - The Honourable Peter Gordon MacKay, Minister of National Defence and Minister of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, issued the following statement today on the death of a Canadian soldier in Afghanistan:

"It is with great sorrow that I learned of the death of Master Corporal Erin Doyle, who was killed late yesterday in Afghanistan. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this very emotional time.

I would also like to wish a quick recovery to a second Canadian soldier injured in the same incident.

The two soldiers were bravely protecting their combat outpost in the Panjwayi District of Afghanistan, when they came under attack by insurgents with rocket propelled grenades and small arms fire.

The vital contribution of the Canadian Forces to the United Nations-mandated, NATO-led mission are making a difference in Afghanistan.Master Corporal Doyle gave his life in support of our efforts to bring security to a country that has seen decades of war. His sacrifice will not be forgotten and this event will not deter us from continuing to help Afghans rebuild their country.

Master Corporal Doyle was a true professional and dedicated Canadian soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan. He will be remembered with respect and gratitude."

Oh crap.  I think I know him.  The name and face are familiar with someone who was in the same mo' unit with me back in the day.  Does anyone know if he in the militia in BC prior to joining the Regs?

RIP, MCpl Doyle.
