“ France lives and France is free, and Canada is better because she did something worth while to help free France to live. In many hundreds of plots throughout these hills and valleys, all the way from Flanders to Picardy, lie fifty thousand of our dead. Across the leagues of the Atlantic, the heart strings of our Canadian Nation will reach through all time, to these graves in France.
‘ Their name liveth for evermore.’ “
- Words spoken by the Canadian Premier at the veiling of the Cross of Vimy.
