Remembrance Day 2019

At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, Canadians pause from coast to coast to coast. They pause for two minutes of silence a minute of reflection and a minute of gratitude. We live in a country strong and free thanks to those who fought selflessly to achieve peace. They were ordinary Canadians making extraordinary sacrifices. Today, and everyday, take a moment to honour all Canadians who have served and sacrificed ... ... and thank those who continue to serve today. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning… we will remember them. Lest we forget. Join the conversation #CanadaRemembers A message from the government of Canada
