The Honourable Julian Fantino, Minister of Veterans Affairs, along with Patrick Brown, Member of Parliament for Barrie, today announced Government of Canada support to the Rotary Club of Barrie for a new monument to commemorate Canadian recipients of the Victoria Cross.
The monument will be a prominent feature of Military Heritage Park, currently under construction in Barrie, and will display the names of 98 Canadians who have been awarded the Victoria Cross.
The Government of Canada is committed to ensuring Canada's veterans are recognized for their service to their country, and that they receive the benefits and respect they deserve when their time in uniform is complete.

"Our Government is proud to partner with the Rotary Club of Barrie to erect a lasting memorial to honour those Canadians whose brave and courageous acts have earned them the Victoria Cross - our highest military honour. Their bravery and valour deserve our enduring recognition."
- The Honourable Julian Fantino, Minister of Veterans Affairs
"Military Heritage Park is a fitting place for a memorial to Canadian recipients of the Victoria Cross. Here, all generations can learn of Canada’s military history and remember the successes—and sacrifices—of so many sons and daughters in defending freedom and peace."
- Patrick Brown, Member of Parliament for Barrie.
"On behalf of the Rotary Club of Barrie, I would like to thank the federal government for its support in helping us to create a monument for our Victoria Cross recipients. We are also excited and proud to be associated with the City of Barrie to create this Military Park, where this monument will take a prominent place."
