“This is a story that needs to be told,” said Andrew Leslie, former commanding general of the Canadian Army, now Liberal MP for Orleans, Ont., and the party whip.

Leslie was on hand at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa on Nov. 24, 2015, along with students, military historians, cartographers and other MPs, to help unveil the Sound Venture Productions and RCGS documentary Drawn to Victory (the first instalment of the A Nation Soars trilogy, which commemorates Canadian aviation in the First World War) and Can Geo Education’s Drawn to Victory Giant Floor Map of the Western Front.
