-->"We took 15 shots and I think I got them all into the space of like an inch; very small. I had no idea, but as we were graduating they called out my name and the chief said it was the best shot he'd ever seen."
** When she graduated, she was approached about going onto sniper training. ''They've never allowed a female to be a sniper in Canada before''. It was never official partly for that reason, but think about it — she could have ended up setting a precedent. She didn't pursue the opportunity because she didn't like the idea of killing someone she'd never met, and who couldn't see her, for reasons she just had to ''trust'' were good.
