Prince Charles addressed the crowd.
“Victory came at an unbearably heavy cost. This was, and remains, the single bloodiest day in Canadian military history. Yet Canadians displayed a strength of character and commitment to one another that is still evident today. They did not waver. This was Canada at its best; the Canadians at Vimy embodied the “True North Strong and Free.” – The Prince of Wales, speaking at commemorations in France to mark 100 years since the Battle of Vimy Ridge. #Vimy100 🇨🇦 🇫🇷
