Jim MacDonald was a soldier with the Canadian forces during World War II who later settled in Whistler and Pemberton. He fought in World War II and landed on Juno Beach with the Canadian forces on D-Day. In 2004, he went to fly the flag for Pemberton and Whistler at the 60th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Juno Beach and Vimy Ridge, France. His trip was organized by the Pemberton Legion and financed by community donations. He met and made a speech to Queen Elizabeth II near Juno Beach on this trip, and also visited a house that he remembered seeing when he landed on the beach on D-Day in 1944, in a village called Bernieres, eight kilometres East of Juno Beach.
