Alberta woman looks forward to tracing father’s steps during historic liberation of the Netherlands

Fifty years after being part of the Canadian military forces that helped liberate the Netherlands, Leo Beaulac travelled back to the European country and had a first-hand experience of the deep gratitude felt by its people.

This spring, 25 years after her father’s pilgrimage, Beaulac’s daughter had planned to walk in his footsteps on a 60-kilometre hike over three days that would trace the route her father and other soldiers walked near the end of the Second World War.
