Reconciliation is the monument dedicated to Canadian peacekeepers.

The third photo is of a quotation from Lester B Pearson, delivered during the Suez Canal crisis. "We need action not only to end the fighting but to make the peace. My own government would be glad to recommend Canadian participation in such a United Nations force, a truly international peace and police force." Pearson was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1957, having "saved the world"; UN Peackeepers were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1988.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
