Portraits of Soldiers Stop in Prince Albert

The faces of Canadian troops who have died in Afghanistan were displayed in Prince Albert yesterday.
A semi-trailer rolled into the city and parked in front of city hall.
One full side of the vehicle then opened up and members of the public were given the chance to view the portraits of 156 servicemen and women who have given their lives to the country.
Emil Highway is the grand chief of the First Nations Veterans Association of Saskatchewan.
He says he’s glad the memorial is criss-crossing the country.
A veteran of over twenty years, Highways says it’s tough for soldiers to blend in when they return from overseas.
The memorial tour is scheduled to travel throughout Canada right up until the end of the year.
