Toronto commemorates 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge
The leaders of Canada and France are paying quiet homage to the thousands of soldiers who fought and died during the First World War. Commemoration ceremonies will take place on Sunday at the memorial to honor Canadian soldiers who were killed or wounded during the Battle of Vimy Ridge in April 1917.
"2017 is a special year of commemoration for Canada as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation and we remember the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, the 75th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid and the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele".

Though it was led by British troops, it was mostly fought by Canadian forces.
"They were, most of them, young men in their late teens, in their early 20s", Trudeau said at the ceremony.
"Their loss inspires us to do all in our power to prevent such senseless loss from ever happening again".
"A healthy respect for people that have volunteered their services, their time, their lives for this country" said Dennette Harrison, one of the few hundred people who gathered to watch the ceremony at the Calgary Soldier's Memorial.
Those who herald the importance of Vimy acknowledge all this, but say it is what Vimy has come to represent over the years and decades that matters. I can say without hesitation that Manitobans have never forgotten, and we will never forget, the sacrifice made by our fearless men and women in uniform.
