Dutch Thank Canadian Liberators Toronto Festival

Netherlands 70th Liberation Parade in Toronto


The Liberation of the Netherlands 70th anniversary is celebrated in Toronto by the Dutch community and the Canadians during a spectacular parade from the Moss Park Armoury to Nathan Phillips Square City Hall – May 2nd, 2015..  From  Queen Street and Jarvis to Young and Dundas crowds gather with Dutch flags to wave their thanks commemorating the Canadian Liberators of the Netherlands.

Veteran Gunner Fred Heber at 93 years is representing the soldiers of the 12th Field Royal Canadian Artillery Regiment who fought the battles of WWII and the 1945 Liberation for the Netherlands. His buddy Veteran Gunner Tom Morris also of the 12th Field Regiment, could not be there for the ceremonies but is proud of Fred riding in the WWII RECCE.

Special thanks to the Royal Canadian Legion of Orangeville who made it possible for Fred to be there.
