Today on November 11, 2015, we honour and gratefully thank the Canadians who fought for freedom and democracy in World War I, II and subsequent wars. We also remember the young Norwegians who risked their lives in escaping from their homeland — occupied by Hitler’s troops in 1940 — and fled to Canada to join the Royal Norwegian Air Force at “Little Norway” in Muskoka and Toronto. After training at Little Norway, the young men returned overseas as pilots and aircrew and earned great respect for their successes in air battles against the enemy.
