Today, 66 years ago, thousands of brave young Canadians stood shoulder to shoulder with our allies from Britain and the United States and began the invasion that would liberate Europe from 6 years of war and suffering. Canada's Army would land at a place code named Juno Beach.
I am eternally proud to know how well our soldiers did in this awful struggle. They faced down a dug in enemy and advanced further that any other sector.
God bless all those who fought and died on that fateful day.
