The Dieppe Raid

Today is the anniversary of the one-day Dieppe Raid in 1942, in which 916 Canadians died. Unlike the commemoration of battles at Juno Beach and Vimy Ridge, both of which are marked by impresssive named bridges in Ottawa, the best we can do for Dieppe is a non-descript dead-end street in Vanier.
