What a nice memorial to sad that it is a memorial because of such a sad happening. Still cool to look at and pass by on the way to Parliament Hill

The soaring monument and the stone soldiers representing those who fought for our freedom: right in the heart of things where it makes you remember. The resting place of the unknown soldier makes you stop and ponder: who's son, brother, dad could he have been?

For anyone with a military connection, and/or who values the lifestyle we have today, making a pilgrimage to this spot is mandatory. Find one of your poppies from last November's Remembrance Day, and leave it as a token of thanks. But, parents please instruct your children this memorial is NOT A PLAYGROUND - DO NOT CRAWL ALL OVER THE MONUMENT; AND ESPECIALLY, DON'T WALK OR SIT ON THE TOMB OF THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER. This arouses the ire of every veteran, and many others, who expect that appropriately respectful behavior occurs at this memorial site.

I thought it would be depressing to see the war stuff, but it was educational and reverent at the same time. I took my elderly father there and even he enjoyed it, with all the large machines and trucks.

This War Memmorial is very wheelchair accessible for the old and the new soldiers compared to the War Memmorial called the Cenotaph in Peterborough, Ontario, both done by the same sculptor who also did the Vimy Ridge Memmorial. This Memmorial is shown on televisions across the country of Canada every November 11 at 11 oçlock to show our respects for the soldiers who have died fighting originally in WW1, WW2 & the Korean War but now respects every Canadian soldier who has died either in a Peace Mission or War after the Korean War.
