How WW1 shaped Canada as a nation
European Union leaders have gathered in the Belgium town of Ypres to commemorate those who lost their lives in World War One almost a century ago.
But the Great War is remembered far beyond European shores. Over 400,000 Canadians were sent overseas to fight - many never to return.
The Battle of Vimy Ridge was not only seen as Canada's most celebrated military victory - but helped shape a nation.
