Some students not sure what to do for Remembrance Day

Reading Time: < 1 minute

When we asked students about their Remembrance Day plans, many said that they are not sure what they should be doing to commemorate this memorial day. If you aren’t sure how to take part, we’ve got you covered.

Today, we speak to tell the story of those who have lost their voices and we share a moment of silence to recognize the cost of the victory they have given us.

Remembrance Day is a time to express our gratitude for the soldiers who came before us and who fought to give us the freedoms we have today. Each one stood with bravery and with honour, sacrificing everything to give us a better life.

Many people will be attending the Remembrance Day ceremony that is held at TD Harbour Station. The public is encouraged to be there any time after 9 a.m., with the parade assembling at 10:15 a.m.

If you are unable to attend the ceremony at Harbour Station, watch the clock at home, or wherever you are, and take 1 minute of silence at 11 a.m. to honour those we have lost and share a moment of gratitude with the rest of the nation.
