Everything you need to know about Remembrance Day in Vancouver

Remembrance Day is coming up. Sure, malls and communities are all a buzz with holiday hoo haw, but Saturday is a perfect time to pause and reflect before we get swept away in a hurricane of glittery light displays, craft fairs and Christmas concerts.

This year, bring the kids to a ceremony on November 11th. Take a moment of silence to honour and remember the men and women who have served, and continue to serve Canada during times of war, conflict and peace and take in the pageantry.
