Remembrance Day

In November, Canadians wear scarlet poppies to pay tribute to those who have died in war and military operations. At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month – the time the Armistice of World War I was signed in 1918 – people across the country are asked to observe two minutes of silence to remember those servicemen and women who have sacrificed their lives.

At 11 am today (EST), November 11th please join our country in taking time to remember the sacrifice made in the past and the bravery exhibited around the globe in the present. Tear.

Thanks for the reminder that it is not just a day off, or a day without banking or postal service. It is a day to remember the bravest of the brave and their sacrifice for all of us.
