65 years ago The Netherlands was liberated mostly by Canadians.  The people of the Netherlands vowed never to forget.  On May 15 The Dutch Canadian citizens of Canada will again say thank you to their Canadian liberators.  We of Southwestern Ontario will thank our Canadian brothers and sisters by holding a memorial celebration at the Cenotaph and Carillon in Victoria park in London, Ontario.  We call upon all the Dutch Canadian Community and the Community at large of Southwestern, Ontario to join in the celebration and recognition of our Canadian Veterans.
