Vimy Ridge Day

On this Vimy Ridge Day, April 9, 2024, I, Toby Randell, Mayor of Carleton Place, pay tribute to the historic significance of this day. Vimy Ridge Day commemorates the Battle of Vimy Ridge in 1917, where Canadian forces achieved a remarkable victory during World War I. This triumph not only demonstrated the bravery and sacrifice of our soldiers but also marked a pivotal moment in our nation's history, contributing to Canada's growing autonomy and international reputation. As we honor the memory of those who served and reflect on the enduring legacy of this pivotal battle, let us uphold the values of unity, resilience, and peace. Together, let's ensure that the sacrifices made at Vimy Ridge continue to inspire a future of harmony and understanding for generations to come.
