Archives of Ontario WW1 Exhibit

On October 3, 2014 – 100 years to the day after the first contingent of the Canadian Expeditionary Force set sail for England – the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, and Chris Ballard, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Government and Consumer Services, officially opened the Archives of Ontario’s newest onsite exhibit, Dear Sadie: Love, Lives, and Remembrance from Ontario’s First World War <>.

For those of us not convenient to the Archives of Ontario there are online and travelling (pdf) exhibits
"Reading the correspondence between Harry and Sadie helps us to remember the humanity behind an inhumane war. Through these letters, it is easier to put ourselves in the boots of these soldiers, or in the shoes of their loved ones at home. Spending time with Harry and Sadie helps us to remember all of those who fought in Ontario’s first World War."
