Churchill was one of the most inspiring people in the whole history of mankind. His leadership in 1940 was a major factor in Hitler's Nazi forces being thwarted in their attempt to conquer Europe. In 1946 his warnings of the Soviet intent to take over Western Europe were scorned but as often with his predictions he was proven right and the formation of NATO owed much to his leadership. His life, achievements, and philosophy are still highly pertinent in the 21st Century.

An impressive and moving part of the stimulating and most enjoyable event was the ceremony at Ship Harbour, where Churchill stepped ashore - the CBC video includes part of the speech by Churchill's great grandson, Duncan Sandys, and interviews with two of the organizers, Nicole Walsh and Barry Davenport.
A major objective of ICS Canada is the education of the public and especially the younger generation on the life and achievements of Winston Churchill and their relevance in the 21st century.
