Ottawa — The Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Veterans Affairs, issued the following statement today in recognition of the 68th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.

“On June 6, 1944, Allied troops stormed enemy defences on the beaches of Normandy. The Canadians were among the first into action and, against terrible odds, they fought their way onto Juno Beach. Those soldiers fought bravely for democracy, peace and justice.

Historically, D-Day is considered a turning point in the Second World War. Sixty-eight years ago, Canadian forces from land, air and sea branches, along with members of Canada’s Merchant Navy, came together in the defence of freedom. The success achieved in Normandy paved the way to victory in Europe on May 8, 1945.

The Canadian triumph on D-Day and during the Battle of Normandy was not without sacrifice as Canadians suffered the most casualties of any division in the British Army Group. As we know, freedom comes with a price. Of the more than 90,000 Canadians who served in the Battle of Normandy, more than 5,000 would give their lives.

We remember those who served and the sacrifices made by Canadians in making our country what it is today. We reflect on the legacy we have inherited. Canada remembers D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. Lest we forget.”
