Just pulled an eight-page glossy advert out of the local paper. Ottawa Tourism is promoting all the events of 2017 - the 150th Anniversary of Confederation, the 105th Grey Cup, all kinds of music festivals and theatre events - and a mention of the science museum which won't even be open until November.
Conspicuously absent were any mentions of the Canadian War Museum, or the centennial of Vimy Ridge.
Should I be surprised?
It may be an oversight, an exhibition on Vimy does appear to be in the works, albeit this looks rather amorphous, and April 9 is barely four months away!

More importantly, what is planned for 2018, will proper recognition be given to the Canadian Corps decisive contribution to the One Hundred Days?
