Here is a link so you can attend our local Prince Rupert Remembrance Day Ceremony virtually.

Covid 19 may prevent us from attending Remembrance Ceremonies at local cenotaphs, but it can’t stop us from remembering those who fought in both World Wars and in the peacekeeping missions that give us the privilege of enjoying our freedoms that we have today.  There are a great many stories about the people who fought in the wars, the people who lost loved ones, and those that struggled with the memories of the horrors of war when they came home.


Just Google, Canada and World War I or II and you find numerous sites with many aspects of all the different conflicts that Canada has been in.   One interesting site is: History – History|Canada and the First World War (this is a Canadian War Museum site) which includes sites for; Land Battles like Vimy Ridge, and  Passchendaele, Trench Conditions, Medicine, The Home Front, and Remembrance.  Another site is: Powerful Remembrance Day Stories of Canadian Veterans (this is a Reader’s Digest article about 20 Canadians).

“They shall not grow 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.”
