Remembrance Day 2011

Tomorrow you likely have a holiday – and for very good reason. Please take the opportunity to attend a Remembrance Day Ceremony near you. They often last no more than an hour. Here is a list of Veterans’ Week events, including November 11th ceremonies across Canada: http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/veterans-week/events.

Every municipality and city in Metro Vancouver has at least one if not more cenotaphs, and each one will be hosting a ceremony. A simple Google search with your town’s name and “Remembrance Day 2011″ will likely result in information about your local service..

Since last Remembrance Day five Canadians have lost their lives serving, and there have been more than 150 in the past decade that have made the ultimate sacrafice. (http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/afghanistan/casualties/list.html)

Please wear a poppy. Please attend a ceremony if you can. Remember.
