Ronald Duhamel (Minister of Veterans Affairs and Secretary of State (Western Economic Diversification) (Francophonie), Lib.) about the 23 soldiers of the Canadian Expeditionary Force  who ¿were lawfully executed for military offences such as desertion and, in one case, cowardice¿ announcing that ¿the names of these 23 volunteers will be entered into The First World War Book of Remembrance along with those of their colleagues. Adding the names of these citizen soldiers to the pages of this sacred book, which lies in the Memorial Chamber not far from here, will be a fair and just testament to their service, their sacrifice and our gratitude forevermore.¿  Part 1
