I will remember the forced enlist of the future less father of french Canadian nation’s (approved by M. Harper).

Every french canadian know someone in the seventy and more to have some amputation self made to evade the fascist law. Half a thumb anyone?

But what I will remembered the most (Je me Souviens), is the thousands upon thousands of french canadian that have been used in cannon fodder on the Normandy’s landing.

Canada takes merit to make sure french canadian would have a population declined. The Forced enlist was really much more prevalent in Quebec province than any other province in Canada.

That day, is a Souvenir, is a Symbol that a lot of us will never forget.

Thank you for your comment.
I think that the history is complicate and it is not always the all sources are valid! But the history is created by people who would make mistakes. I believe that any political trends cannot change my memory and respect for those people who was at war and sacrificed their lives, even if they have been involved in war against their will… I understand each nation that participated in those wars, have own fears, and pain, and history. I understand and respect that.
