Battle Of Vimy Ridge Recognized In Prince George

The 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge saw close to 200 people show up in Prince George on Sunday.

Over 7,000 Canadian soldiers were injured and an additional 3,500 died from April 9th to 12th 1917 when trying to take back Vimy from enemy troops.

World War II veteran Armand Denicola has visited Vimy and says when he was there, he cried.

The 95 year old received the national order of the legion of honour from France a few years ago.
