Ontarians Invited To Join Premier McGuinty At Queen’s Park Ceremony

Premier Dalton McGuinty is encouraging Ontarians to gather this Sunday at Queen’s Park to honour our veterans during Remembrance Day ceremonies.

Ontario’s Ceremony of Remembrance service will take place on November 11 at 10:45 a.m. on the front lawn of the Main Legislative Building at Queen’s Park. The ceremony recognizes the sacrifices and bravery of Canadian soldiers who served our nation in times of war, and during peace keeping missions, for nearly a century. The service includes a 21-gun salute, a youth pledge and the laying of the wreaths on the Veterans’ Memorial Wall.

People will have the opportunity to pin a poppy on the People’s Wreath to recognize the sacrifices made by our troops and give thanks for their extraordinary service. Two minutes of silence will be observed at 11 a.m.

Headed to Queen’s Park for #RemembranceDay. For my grandfather who served in WW11& for men & women who have immeasurable courage.Lindsay Maskell

"EYES FRONT", the veterans of the 48th Highlanders march past the 7th Toronto Regiment RCA Gunners, mostly Korean War and those that served on UN duties. I don’t believe there were any WWII Veterans there today, at least not marching. As a man of Dutch ancestry I give particular thanks to these veterans as they are part of just one of the many fine Canadian Regiments that liberated Holland directly. Thank you. #canada #veteran #service #soldier #army #48thhighlanders #igers #iphone #iphone4 #instaday #instahub #instagram #iphoneista #iphoneonly #instanation #instagrammer #infantry #soldier #vedaymvl12
