Toronto to commemorate D-Day, June 6
  
The City of Toronto will commemorate the 68th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy at City Hall’s Nathan Phillips Square at noon tomorrow.

On June 6, 1944, Canada took part in the D-Day invasion of France that marked the beginning of the liberation of France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark during the Second World War.

Mayor Rob Ford will welcome veterans and the public, and will join D-Day veteran John Hadley to proclaim “Toronto Remembers D-Day, June 6, 2012.”

Date: Wednesday, June 6
Time: Noon to 1 p.m.
Location: Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

War veterans, honour guards and bands will be participating in this annual commemorative event. Singers will entertain with popular songs of the Second World War period on the square from noon until the start of the ceremony.
