Kudos to a small community in Ontario for saving an iconic part of Canadian history from the wrecking ball. This is a must-see not only for history enthusiasts, but all Canadians. This museum will definitely be a stop on the trail for our family.
This image dubbed Wait For Me, Daddy became one of the most famous photographs in Canadian history. Warren 'Whitney' Bernard remembers the autumn of 1940. He was five years old when his father marched down 8th Street on his way to war. Whitney grew up and eventually became the mayor of Tofino, B.C.

To commemorate the poignant moment captured by this photo, a Canadian sculptor and his wife are already at work on three statutes to be placed on the exact location where the photo was taken, at the intersection of 8th Street and Columbia St., New Westminster, B.C. Look for it in 2014, along with a 2015 reenactment of the soldiers' march to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. Source CBC News
