The Juno Beach Centre held a ceremony online today to mark the 76th anniversary of D-Day.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, it is not possible for families of the 14-thousand Canadian soldiers who landed on the beaches of Normandy to make the trip this year.

Bells rang across France this morning to pay tribute to the liberators and the Juno Beach Centre broadcast a ceremony on its social media platforms.
