Remembrance Day – Ceremony and parade to honour our veterans
The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, and members of City Council invite residents to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony on Sunday, November 12.
“This is an occasion for Canadians to commemorate our veterans and honour their contribution, commitment, and sacrifice in the name of freedom,” stated Mayor Trudeau.
Activities will begin with a parade at 9:20 a.m. on Dieppe Avenue, east of Hornell Avenue. This year, the parade route will be modified slightly due to infrastructure work route on Saint-Louis Avenue and will proceed along Dieppe, Maywood, Douglas-Shand and Civic-Centre Avenues. The Remembrance Day ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. at the cenotaph, the monument erected in memory of fallen soldiers, located behind City Hall.
Members of the Royal Canadian Legion, the 2806 Pointe-Claire Cadet Corps, the 690 Lakeshore Air Cadet Squadron, the 830 Pierrefonds Air Cadet Squadron, Scouts and Guides, and the Pointe-Claire Volunteer Rescue Unit will take part in the parade, which will include a brass band. To ensure safety, traffic will be interrupted in the area for the duration of the parade.
“On behalf of Council, we invite citizens to join us and to wear a poppy,” added Mayor Trudeau. “It’s a symbol that says we remember those who died at war to defend the freedom that we enjoy every day of our lives.”
