Vimy was the most successful part of the Battle of Arras in April 1917, as the Canadians pushed up and captured the strategically important ridge from the Germans. 100 years have since passed, but the legacy of Canadians who served during the First World War and fought in this battle will never be forgotten.
Soldiers marched in a parade in Calgary on Saturday to mark the 100 anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge.
On April 9, 1917, the Canadians succeeded in taking Vimy Ridge.
In bright spring sunshine, the crowd at the memorial site was a sea of red t-shirts, many of them showing the Canadian flag.
Trudeau and French President Francois Hollande unveiled a "Poppy of Peace" monument on Sunday morning in the town of Arras, a few kilometres from Vimy.
The battle marked the first time all four Canadian divisions fought together side-by-side during the war, advancing together on the heavily fortified ridge.

The sacrifice of First World War Canadian soldiers who helped forge peace in Europe and a national identity for their country has been praised by world leaders at a ceremony.
"Today, as we mark the 100 anniversary of the battle, we honour the soldiers who fought at Vimy".
Clark said the battle came at a bad cost to Canadians with more than 10,000 soldiers killed and wounded in horrific conditions.
"They are going with the idea that they may not survive and it takes somebody with a different mindset to do that", said Sgt. (Ret.d) John Bertram.

There had been bloodier battles for the Canadians - 24,000 were killed or wounded at the Somme as compared to 11,000 at Vimy.

Canada's victory at Vimy became a nation-building moment for English Canada at a time when the young country, a former colony of Great Britain, was still very much attached to Britain.
"Their sacrifice must inspire us to do everything to avoid that senseless losses happen again", Charles said of the long-ago Canadians who lost their lives in France.
