Doing right for the country: The Canadian War Museum's mission to save Canada's Victoria Crosses

  Doing right for the country: The Canadian War Museum's mission to save Canada's Victoria Crosses For Valour. That’s the simple inscription on the Commonwealth’s highest military medal, but it carries with it the weight of almost 100 stories of Canadian bravery. The Victoria Cross is not an elaborate medal. It’s a simple square cross, made of a bronze alloy with a crown and a lion over the inscription. Since it was first created in 1856 it has been awarded to 99 Canadians. The cross has been given to Canadian soldiers for sacrifices on the beaches of Dieppe, the fields of Passchendaele or at Hill 70. They were given to aviators who stayed inside burning planes to free trapped colleagues and a captain who moored his boat in a hostile harbour even as it caught fire.

St. Louis Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo is suspended four games for repeatedly cross-checking Nashville Predators forward Viktor Arvidsson on Saturday, the NHL's Department of Player Safety announced.

Bortuzzo was assessed a two-minute minor for the play, which occurred in the first period. Arvidsson exited the game with a lower-body injury and has since been ruled out of action for four-to-six weeks.

This marks Bortuzzo's third suspension in the NHL. The 30-year-old was booked for two games in 2014 as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins for a high hit on Jaromir Jagr before missing two preseason contests and one regular-season game in 2018 for an elbow on Michal Kempny.

Bortuzzo has appeared in 11 games for the Blues this season, notching one assist while averaging 12:25 of ice time per contest.

Arvidsson has registered six goals and nine assists in 22 games this year for the Predators.
