Remembering the Fallen
Today we would like to recognize the sacrifice of those who served our country in the battle for Vimy Ridge 100 years ago today. Their courage and sacrifice represent the best in the people of Canada. As Canadians we stand for freedom and equality for all people, regardless of race religion or economic circumstance.
These were the values that so many brave Canadians fought and died for at the battle of Vinny Ridge. It was in this moment that Canadians found an identity in these values and that they are worth fighting for.
On this day the 100th anniversary of the Battle for Vimy Ridge, we commemorate and remember the sacrifice our soldiers fought to defend. We are ever grateful for their sacrifice and honor that sacrifice in living up to the ideals they fought to defend.
