Remembrance Day

Pin It


Lest We Forget


In November, we remember. Here in Canada it's Remembrance Day. It's a solemn holiday in this country and even more solemn lately for all the families of Canadians killed in Afghanistan.

All around the country, people will recite the famous poem written by John McCrae, In Flanders Fields. Here's "A Part of Our Heritage: In Flanders Fields" a short about the story behind the poem.

  1. Thank you for reminding us that Remembrance Day doesn't just mean a long weekend. My husband and I "remembered" by watching some ceremonies on CBC Newsworld.
