A Very Different Remembrance Day

Remembrance Square Corner Brook. Kyle Sooley-Brookings.

This year Remembrance Day will look a lot different. There will be little if any, ceremonies happening across Canada due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some locations have opted to hold ceremonies by invitation only.

Remembring those who have fought and gave the ultimate sacrifice for Canada doesn't need to be done at a cenotaph. You can observe two minutes of silence regardless of where you are.

To allow residents to pay their respects and to recognize this important day without a mass gathering, the Legion in St. John's encourages citizens to observe a moment of silence at your front door.

In Ottawa, the traditional tribute will be made with a special edition of the symbolic fly-past.

It will also mark the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.

The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931.

The Act of Remembrance

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

We will remember them.
