  • Prime Minister's remarks at a Vimy Ridge memorial with veterans
    CHECK AGAINST DELIVERYGood morning everyone.First of all, I want to thank you for being here. It's an honour for me to get to share a few words with you.101 years ago this year, 7,004 Canadians were injured in the battle that began here at Vimy Ridge.3,598 Canadians would never return home. Canada’s population numbered only 8 million at the time.That was 100 years ago, but the realities of war – the tragic loss of those fallen in battle, the magnitude of sacrifice – transcend time.You know that better than anyone.
