Response to Canadian VCs and the metal

Hopefully the Canadian VC will carry on the tradition and be made from the Chinese made bronze gun captured from the Russians.

Thanks for the info, and interesting comment. Why "hopeful"? I understand the historical significance to the British VC, but I wonder if something more appropriate couldn't be found for a Canadian VC. We weren't even a country when the cannon was captured by British troops in the Crimea. It doesn't seem to have much connection to "us" other than the fact we've awarded it 90+ times.

I wonder what official thought has been given to this.
