Near the end of the Second World War, General Charles Foulkes accepted the surrender of German troops in the Netherlands. His service changed the course of history, and his legacy continues to inspire people in Canada and the Netherlands to this day. Indeed, our two countries are forever united by the role he and others played during the Liberation of the Netherlands.

To honour him, Princess Margriet and I helped unveil a plaque at Beechwood Cemetery this afternoon. We will never forget his service, and we will continue to pay tribute to all who have served our country.

Vers la fin de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, le général Charles Foulkes a accepté la capitulation des troupes allemandes aux Pays-Bas. Son service a changé le cours de l’histoire, et son héritage inspire encore aujourd’hui les habitants du Canada et des Pays-Bas. En effet, nos deux pays sont à jamais unis par le rôle que lui et d’autres gens ont joué pendant la libération des Pays-Bas.

Cet après-midi, la princesse Margriet et moi avons participé au dévoilement d’une plaque en son honneur au cimetière Beechwood. Nous n’oublierons jamais son service, et nous continuerons de rendre hommage à tous ceux qui ont servi notre pays.
