Remembrance Day in miniature

Remembrance Day sale

The Remembrance Day ceremony at the National War Memorial in Ottawa was smaller and a little quieter this year, but it was nevertheless a moving tribute to those who served and sacrificed their lives for Canada.

The artillery still fired a 21-gun salute, the sound echoing just a bit more off the empty streets.

As an alternative, at approximately 10:40 a.m., the live outdoor ceremony will be streamed through Blake Productions' YouTube channel and through Branch 43's Facebook page (Legion 43 PG).

Local MP Eric Duncan, MPP Jim McDonell and Cornwall Mayor Bernadette Clement laid wreaths at the base of the cenotaph.

Ford said normally the event at Queen's Park would be attended by many more men and women in uniform but this year it was not possible.

As has been tradition in recent years, two people lay their poppies on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the end of the Remembrance Day ceremony. "And wherever they may be, Canadians can take two minutes of silence at 11 a.m. on the 11th".

Top Defense Department official quits, fueling more uncertainty at the Pentagon
But days before his sacking, the former defence secretary warned that if he were to be replaced, it would be by a Trump loyalist. And they fuelled worries of a wider effort to drum out anyone considered not loyal enough to Trump .

President and CEO of the Regina Legion, Ron Hitchcock says he was happy to see people come out and take part in the ceremony.

The Royal Canadian Legion has asked people to stay home on Remembrance Day and pay private respects.

"They come from a world where the technology isn't there and they don't relate to pictures being broadcast over Zoom", he said. Silver Cross Mother Carol Collier, who lost her son Sapper Brian Collier in Afghanistan on July 10, 2010, laid the first wreath. A year ago we had 1,200 or so.

The restrictions on crowds that are necessary because of the COVID-19 pandemic have thrust new challenges at the time-honoured memorial. "Since then we have commemorated this event on the 11th of November in Canada to remember those who fought bravely for our freedom and to those who have served, and to those who continue to serve our country in military service".

There will be no public Remembrance Day service at Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw this year.

By the afternoon, there was a pile of red poppies starting to cover the tomb.
