Ted Barris

Ted Barris, Author, Broadcaster and Professor presented an evening program describing his book about Vimy. Comments made after the program included many where the members were quite taken with the method in which he described the process leading up to the battle at Vimy on April 12-16, 1916. His physicality allowed you to be drawn into the description he was creating and it became easier to imagine how it was and how the days progressed  in those few terrible days of the Great War. His patriotism and pride of the Canadian forces is very moving. He has made a lifetime of Remembrance through his documentations of thousands of veterans, books, pilgrimages and programs such as the one he bestowed upon our Society last Monday. Thank you Ted.
