“A Place of Honour and Reflection”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

From The War of 1812 to Afghanistan, Canadians have given their all to protect our home and those who can't protect themselves. At the Cenotaphe and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier,we honour our fallen and their comrades not just on November 11th , but everyday of the year

A fitting place to remember Canada's place in the world and its struggle to become a nation. Always a focus for Armistice Day

“Moving.......Very Moving”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

During my visit every time I walked towards downtown or walked by the National War Memorial I would conscientiously think about the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces. Very striking Memorial for them.
