Fresh flowers often grace the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, an unnamed Canadian victim of the First World War. Towering above are 22 figures frozen in bronze as they rush forward into battle. Nurses, pilots, soldiers and sailors all represent tales of self-sacrifice and courage. Though prominently located in the busy downtown core, this triangle of space becomes the centre of attention every November 11 at 11am, when the country marks Remembrance Day in honour of the men and women who paid the ultimate price for freedom.
