PARIS | The Latest: Trudeau pays homage to veterans at WWI ceremony
PARIS — The Latest on World War I armistice commemorations (all times local):
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has paid homage to veterans at a World War I centennial commemoration in a cemetery in northern France, thanking soldiers for their service as he stood amid row upon row of silent graves.
With medal-bedecked veterans in attendance Saturday morning, Trudeau spoke of the “history for which you bled and fought, a history built on your sacrifice.”
He said Canada owes its veterans “a tremendous debt of gratitude” and added: “From the very bottom of our hearts, thank you.”
Clutching a red chrysanthemum, Trudeau also walked among the white gravestones at the Canadian Cemetery No.
