New monument in Welland will honour veterans


The city of Welland has put up a new monument to honour our veterans.

President of the Welland Legion Paul Racicot joined Matt Holmes on CKTB to explain why one of their members decided to get this done.

He said the thought was to "have a special place for veterans and our fallen comrads", adding that it provice "a sanctuary for our veterans to be buried in special place in our cemetary".

The monument is 6 years in the making, located in the Woodlawn Cemetary at the corner of Niagara street and Woodlawn Road.
