The Never Forgotten National Memorial is a project to mark Canada’s 150th birthday, and to commemorate the 114,000 Canadian soldiers who have died fighting in foreign countries. To be called “Remembrance Point,” its most striking feature is a “Mother Canada” statue, which could be as tall as ten storeys high, that depicts a woman extending her hands towards Europe. The statue is to be modeled after “Canada Bereft,” a similar monument at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial.
