  • VE-Day: Why Dutch-Canadian connections have stayed so strong

    When Edie Bijdemast lays a wreath at the cenotaph in White Rock, B.C., on May 4 each year, it's an emotional reckoning that extends beyond honouring those who died in her Dutch homeland during the Second World War. "If the Canadian soldiers hadn't come, I don't even think my mom and dad would have survived the war, and I wouldn't even be here," says Bijdemast, who immigrated to Canada with her family as a five-year-old in 1956. Bijdemast's emotional connection to her birth place is a very personal example of the ties that have grown between Canada and the Netherlands, and which will be at the forefront once again as ceremonies here and on the other side of the Atlantic this week mark the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe.
