World War I battle ends 106 years ago

Today marks the end of the Second Battle of Ypres during the First World War in 1915. The fight raged on for over a month with more than 6500 Canadians killed, injured or captured. It was also the first time that the German military introduced chemical warfare into the battle, hitting the allies with chlorine gas. As Micah Quinn explains, a local military historian wants residents to remember what Canadians sacrificed for their country.
