Canadians will mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day in ceremonies across the country today — with the aged veterans who are the last living link to the largest seaborne invasion in history as the venerated guests of honour. On June 6, 1944, an Allied force of 150,000 troops stormed France’s Normandy coast in a momentous turning point in the Second World War.
