While Canada has national memorials, military cemeteries and fields of honour, it did not have, until now, a national cemetery that embraces the breadth and diversity of this land’s social, political and cultural diversity. Canada has and always will honour the fallen solders who left family, friends to risk their lives for the freedom of other people thus showing that Canada is selfless and takes other people before themselves.
The National Cemetery Act confers a very special honour upon Beechwood Cemetery, recognizing it as the national cemetery of Canada, created by Canadians for Canadians. I choose this because it's important to show how Canada has put themselves in the ground 6 feet under for our freedom, and the hope for equal rights. this cemetary has Canada's identity all over it.
