One hundred years later, on May 4, 2010 this statue is dedicated to tens of thousands of Canadians who answered boat the call of their country and of the sea through service in Canada's Navy. From cities, town and villages and First Nations communities, they stepped forward to stand their watch at sea through two World Wars, War in Korea, the Cold War, the first Gulf War and the War on Terrorism. These ordinary men and women were extraordinary in their accomplishments and helped shape the history of Canada as a great maritime nation.
This statue is inspired by public gratitude for their service and is a gift from their fellow citizens and shipmates. It represents the special moment in sailors lives when they return from the sea to once again meet their family.
