Special thanks to our Chief of Defence Staff, General Walt Natynczyk who travelled from Ottawa to join us as our Reviewing Officer. We were truly honoured to have General Natynczyk with us, he is an incredible leader of the Canadian Forces and a wonderful supporter of our Veterans. Our up-close parade format this year offered the opportunity for many personal exchanges with General Natynczyk.
Thank you to Honorary Colonel Dave Devall who was our Honourary Parade Marshall. Dave was received with great warmth by the Veterans and specators and we believe he had something to do with the great weather!
Thanks to the CNE for providing more than 3,000 seats in a prime viewing location opposite the saluting dais. We sincerely thank all of the many volunteers who have worked over the past year to make this event possible. Thanks also to the many contingents who marched in the parade and the thousands who came out to honour and cheer our Veterans and our Troops.
This year the parade celebrated the 65th Anniversary of VE Day, 200 Years of Cavalry and The Governor General's Horse Guards, the 150th Anniversary of The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada and The Canadian Naval Centennial.
