Highway of Heroes

It's a sunny summer evening and a crowd has gathered on the Cranberry Road bridge. This overpass in Port Hope, Ontario spans the Macdonald-Cartier Freeway--known to most as ¨the 401¨--about 170 kilometers east of Toronto.

[...]

There is no noise now, no talking. the crowd stands silently, hand to heart, flag to sky. A convoy approaches in the distance. The motorcade passes slowly on the highway below: one car, two. Then a hearse. Its windows are open and from inside a hand waves a beret to aknowledge the silent compatriots gathered outside, pouring out their gratitude, sympathy, and love to those within.

[...]

Whenever fallen Canadian soldiers are returned to the Canadias Forces Base inTrenton, Ontario, This scene plays itself out all along the 172-kilometer stretch of Highway 401 between Trenton and Toronto. Today officially known as the Highway of Heroes, this passageway marks the solemn journey of fallen soldiers and their families to the Centre for Forensic Sciences in Toronto, and preparation for their final resting place. The official designation for this stretch of highway was borne of a spontaneous and unprecedented grassroots movement inspired by the thousands of Canadians who, since 2002, have gathered of their own volition along the roadways and overpasses of this route to pay tribute to those who have given their lives for our nation.
