June 6, 1944 was D-Day. Canadian soldiers took part in the largest military operation in history: the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe. On that day, Canadians accomplished every mission assigned to them. On June 6, 2003 veterans who fought on that historic day accomplished another mission. They saw their dream of a museum to commemorate Canada’s wartime contributions come to life. CBC News provided exclusive live coverage of the museum’s opening ceremonies from Courseulles-sur-Mer, France. This special production includes highlights of the Juno Beach Centre opening ceremonies, CBC News reports on the history of D-Day, and the recollections of some Canadians who fought there. CBC News Chief Correspondent Peter Mansbridge anchored the live coverage and introduces this special commemorative video.
