Long Description:
On September 11,2005:

Across the United States and Canada, ceremonies honoured the memories of the nearly 3,000 victims who died when terrorists launched a bloody attack on American soil on Sept. 11, 2001.

Meanwhile in Canada, Prime Minister Paul Martin joined U.S. Ambassador David Wilkins in paying tribute to the victims of the attacks.

At a gathering of about 200 dignitaries at the American embassy, Martin said it's important for all civilized peoples to commemorate those who perished in the attacks four years ago.

"The events of Sept. 11 were primarily yours to endure. However, the burden of defending our way of life, whenever and wherever it comes under threat, is one we share," he said.

Wilkins and Martin unveiled a plaque on the grounds of the U.S. embassy in Ottawa to recognize Canada's help for America on 9/11 and in the aftermath.
