Another large ice sculpture was added in Confederation Park during Winterlude. This year marks the centennial of the Battle Of Vimy Ridge during the First World War. The battle, a key moment in Canadian history, raged between April 9th to 12th, 1917, and resulted in Canadian troops taking the ridge from German soldiers. The large memorial standing today on the battlefield in France is incorporated into this ice sculpture with a maple leaf. An icy variant on one of the statues the memorial's designer, Walter Allward, placed among that memorial, titled Canada Bereft, stands before the main sculpture. I took these shots on two different days; the last three shots were taken after we had some snow.
