Moving and interesting memorial. It was also very interesting to read the biographies of those wounded and killed in battle that surround the memorial itself.

One must visit and pay their respects to those lost in WWI, WWII and the Korean War, as well as the tomb of the unknown soldier. This serves as the site of our annual Remembrance Day service on November 11th (Armistice Day), and is a very moving place to reflect on the sacrifice that was made by those who went to war and never came home.

The memorial is a great piece of art, and a natural focal point. It is in good order and a tranquil place.

This is an important historical monument that is a must see. It is guarded by knowledgeable interpreters.

My review is based on the accessible memorial. Repairs are under way now (July 2014), so the memorial in surrounded by a three or four meter wall. Too bad, especially on the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Great War! The repairs were necessary and hopefully it'll be on view once again very soon. I did get he chance to see it in May of 2013, though.

This is a fitting tribute to Canadians who lost their lives in the Great War and in World War II. It's sad to note that the memorial was originally just for WWI, but it became a memorial for the Second World War as well, a few years after that war ended. World War I was called "The War to End All Wars." No so, I'm afraid.
