Publish date:

After MacLean read a letter from a Canadian soldier stationed in Afghanistan, Cherry asked Canadians to support their troops.

"These are the bravest guys in the world," Cherry said. "I know there's a lot of people out there who don't believe in the war (against the Taliban in Afghanistan). That's your right . . . but while they're over there we have to support them."

Cherry added that looking after soldiers wounded in the war should be "the number one priority" in Canada.

The episode ended with pictures of Canadian soldiers killed in Afghanistan.
