Before they were grandparents, they proudly served our country.
Tomorrow, we’ll come together as a nation to commemorate the sacrifices made by our veterans. In Canada, Remembrance Day falls on November 11th and historically marks the end of the First World War. On this date in 1918, hostilities formally ceased on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month.
While you take a moment to remember the 100,000 soldiers who gave their lives for our country, consider also adopting the new minute of silence by joining Canada Remembers in refraining from using social media for 11 minutes — no tweeting, posting or instagramming. Can you do it?
Share this message and join us tomorrow, November 11th, at 11:01am — let’s be #silenttoremember Canada’s Veterans.
