November 11th- the one occasion that isn’t celebrated. As the name says it all, the day is to take a moment in our busy lives to remember all the lives taken by the first World War. In Canada, it is just as grand of a day as is any other big holiday. Parades and ceremonies are held in communities all across the country to remember and to honour.
We all are well-aware of the significance of Remembrance Day. We all know to be solemn, not applaud, and show respect. But in a country known for diversity and immigrant-acceptance, do most people still truly remember the significance of the day?
