Remembrance Day is November 11th– a day to commemorate the end of the First World War, and to acknowledge the sacrifices of the brave soldiers who fought to end one of the world’s largest and most gruesome conflicts.
In Ottawa, the Royal Canadian Legion will be hosting a Remembrance Day Ceremony at the National War Memorial on Elgin Street. A parade will start at 10:30am, followed by the arrival of dignitaries and a moment of silence at 11am. Finally, there will be the traditional 21 gun salute, a flypast, and the laying of wreaths at the memorial.
The event will be viewable on the Legion’s Facebook page and on all national Canadian news networks.
Beechwood Cemetery, the National Military Cemetery, will also be hosting a Remembrance day Ceremony.
Finally, there will be a projection of falling poppies to represent the fallen soldiers on the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill starting at 6:30pm.
ELMNT wishes you all a good remembrance day.
