Trudeau visits site of Canada’s D-Day landing at Juno Beach

The prime minister and his family have visited Juno Beach where thousands of Canadians landed in France on D-Day — June 6, 1944. He said he hoped the international community would not repeat the “terrible mistakes” of the past. Unlike the US bloody experience at Omaha Beach on D-Day, Canada’s army was able for the most part to wade and walk ashore. It was still a costly day however with nearly 350 deaths recorded.
