Nov. 11 a time to remember

This Tuesday (Nov. 11) is Remembrance Day and let’s hope all Canadians take time to remember the many, many people who lost their lives in war.

And also remember those Canadians who are still in countries where they are trying to make a difference while helping their fellow human beings to have a better quality of life.

Monument unveiled

A large crowd showed up Friday to witness the unveiling of the Dance Fire monument, which coincided with the 70th anniversary of the tragic blaze that swept away 17 lives on Thanksgiving Day back in 1938.

Four families who lost loved ones that day were represented as speeches were given and “Amazing Grace” was played on the bagpipes by Jordan Manty.
