“Mayor John Tory along with members of City Council will welcome veterans, their families and the public to commemorate the 72nd anniversary of the D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. On June 6, 1944, 14,000 Canadian troops took part in Operation Overlord, commonly known as D-Day, when they landed on Juno Beach in Normandy, France. The allied invasion marked the beginning of the liberation of Europe during the Second World War. The ceremony will be hosted on Nathan Phillips Square on Monday, June 6.”
Inside City Hall are two photo exhibits - on by photographer Ludmila Schnaider and one a collection of archival photographs taken during the war and provided by veterans and their families. The exhibitions will remain until noon June 7.
