April 9, 2018 – 101st Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge

I would like to join all Canadians in commemorating the 101st Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

Easter Monday, April 9, 1917, marked the beginning of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, with all four divisions of the Canadian Corps, fighting together for the first time.  The Commander of the 28th Battalion at Vimy, Brigadier-General Alexander Ross, said of the battle at the unveiling of the new Vimy Memorial in 1936, “It was Canada from the Atlantic to the Pacific on parade.  I thought then…that in those minutes I witnessed the birth of a nation”.
