    Hope you,ll change your mind about having REMEMBRANCE Day parade . The soldiers never cared whether weather or pandemic or their safety just to save us and our terrific country.
    We have to thank them in this small way just an hour only once a year .
    Please rethink it’s not too late to show “thank you” and love of being a proud Canadian

    What a shame, yet another year we are unable to stand together to remember those who lost their lives for us.
    However, even if we cannot be there in person, whether in private or public at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, we can observe solemnity.

    Pathetic disrespect for our veterans ……City Council including the Mayor need to change this immediately
