Prime ministers are often away from Ottawa and unable to attend Canada's National Remembrance Day ceremony. And that's fine, David Akin argues, as it's the act of remembrance that is important, not the address of that act.
A number of events and services are taking place around Winnipeg this week in recognition of Remembrance Day. Most services are open to the public, and people are asked to show up as early as possible.
Global News is commemorating Nov. 11 with social media silence at 11 a.m. local time and at 11 a.m. ET to coincide with ceremonies taking place in Ottawa and across the country. Four services will air on television and on globalnews.ca and its social platforms.
