Thank you for joining me to Remember
On Thursday November 11th at 11am I joined with community members at the Blood Red Memorial flagpole in Britannia Park for what turned out to be an intimate Remembrance Day ceremony. Thank you to The Northwest One Choir for their beautiful performance and to everyone who came out to join me.
This ceremony was put together when my office was made aware that there would not be an official event held in Bay ward this year to formally recognize the Day. I wanted to provide residents with the opportunity to have a place where they could safely gather and pay their respects to those who have made and continue to make sacrifices for our country.
I do hope to make this an annual tradition for Bay Ward. Should Carlingwood Mall reinstate their official ceremony next year I would be happy to hold the Britannia Park gathering at an alternate time during the day to accommodate others such as students and those who participate in other services. Thanks again to all who participated.
