It's just slightly disappointing that WW1 seems to be the only war that "Canadians" can remember fondly because of this particular battle. Even though Canadians participated in lots of WW2 battles, the only real one that I can remember is the crushing defeat at Hong Kong.
The crushing defeat in World War II that everyone remembers is the Dieppe Raid.

For times we won, the most significant would probably be the Scheldt Estuary; Overlord wouldn't have succeeded without that.
