Canada Decoration Day

Canada Decoration Day is held on June 2. It is an unofficial holiday that honors the veterans of the country's military. Decoration Day began as a protest in 1890 by forgotten Canadian veterans who had fought in Canada's first modern battle, the Battle of Ridgeway, on June 2, 1866. This event in the first decade of the month June is annual. Help us Help us
