      I certainly hope that the legacy of the liberation of The Netherlands has not been tarnished by comparing the crime rates between the German occupiers and the Allied liberators. I certainly do not live a 'dream world' where I do not realize that following the liberation of The Netherlands and the Low Countires by the Allies that certain crime rates would have occured, but without statistical evidence, I would not start making general comparative comments.

      There was great human and economic cost to Canada to help liberate The Netherlands from the Germans. The bonds of friendship established during the final months of The Second World War between Canada and The Netherlands are very strong, and for many Canadian Veterans the friendship and goodwill demonstrated by the Dutch was a shining moment that capped off several years of war.

      I just hope that after 60 years those good memories have not faded.
