Beechwood as Canada`s National Cemetery

Last Friday the House of Commons completed all stages of Bill C-17, the National Cemetery of Canada Act. The debate on the Bill, which was supported by all parties, touched on some of the historical significance of Beechwood. You can read it here.

It was particularly pleasing to see BIFHSGO member David Roger mentioned.

Thanks for the link. Most of my Canadian ancestors rest in Beechwood.
