Vimy Ridge 100th Anniversary MAA
Vimy Ridge 100th Anniversary
     On April 9th, 2017, 30 thousand Canadians from all across the country travelled to Vimy Ridge, France to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge. I was lucky enough to be a part of this national and televised event. Not only was our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, present but the French President, British Prime Minister and the British Royal family were also in attendance.

To more than Canadians, Vimy Ridge is a significant battle of World War One. The British and the French both recognize the significance of the battle that led to the end of the war. Our contributions have been commemorated beyond our doorsteps.

It was a phenomenal experience to stand on this monument. You can see for miles and feel the essence of the soldiers who were victorious on the mountain. On this day, I could feel the appreciation of Canadians from the thousands around me and the love for our beautiful country.
