OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/06/14 -- Today marks 70 years since Canadian and Allied forces began the assault on Normandy, and the legacy of that operation lives on in so many ways.
As members of a free and democratic society, we must never forget our debt to those who fought in the D-Day invasions with such courage and determination. At Juno Beach, supported by Canadian and Allied air and sea units, some 3 000 Canadian soldiers landed amid difficult conditions and fierce resistance. The invasion was extraordinarily complex and incurred many casualties, but succeeded in securing a crucial foothold in the fight against fascism in Europe.
For veterans and their families, June 6 is no doubt a difficult day of remembrance. Canadians paid a very high price in Normandy and indeed throughout the Second World War. Let us take this opportunity to remember the service and sacrifice of those who fought so bravely on our behalf.
As commander-in-chief of Canada and as a father and grandfather, I offer my deepest thanks to our veterans and to their families on this important anniversary.
