Walking west down Wellington Street, one ends up at the area called Lebreton Flats, where diagonally across from the War Museum is the Canadian Firefighters Memorial, also called We Were There. Unveiled in 2012, it incorporates a large firefighter sculpture, a wall with the names of fallen fire fighters, and the inscription of a prayer suitable for the profession. More names will be inscribed on the wall in time, including a fire fighter who died several months ago in the area of Cold Lake, Alberta. William Hilts was a fire bomber pilot involved in the fight against a wildfire near that town in May. His plane crashed on the 22nd, and his body was recovered. Will was the son of Stewart and Maria; Stewart is a blogger who comments here regularly under the name Furry Gnome. After finishing here, I highly recommend you read his original post on the tragedy and about his memorial service.
