A new film commemorating the District of Saanich’s Road of Remembrance and First World War veterans received the green light from Saanich Council Nov. 4. Produced by Royal Roads University and the Memorial Avenue Committee, the film will be funded by Saanich and University Heights developer Wesbild with a contribution from the Saanich Firefighters’ Union.
Here is an excerpt:
“As neighbours to the Shelbourne Memorial Avenue at University Heights, we fully support the initiative taken by the Shelbourne Memorial Avenue Committee and Royal Roads University to produce a short film,” said Bentley Harris, director of development at Wesbild. “In honour of the sacrifices made by the Canadian veterans, we wanted to make a financial commitment to the project.”
