Three Remembrance Day events on November 11 to honour and remember those who gave their lives
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, we stop to remember the day the guns fell silent in 1918, marking the end of the First World War. We honour the sacrifices made by so many Canadian men and women of many different cultures and to all who lost fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends and neighbours. It is a day to reflect on the devastating impacts and losses of war as a reminder to always commit first to peacekeeping and dialogue. Lest we forget.
