Statement by the Prime Minister on Vimy Ridge Day
The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Vimy Ridge Day:“On this day, 101 years ago, the four divisions of the Canadian Corps fought for the first time together. They came from all corners of Canada – Francophones, Anglophones, new Canadians, and Indigenous Peoples. In the early hours of April 9, they united as one, achieved what no Allied army had done – and defined a country.
