Premier Encourages Nova Scotians to Attend Remembrance Day Events


On Remembrance Day, Nov. 11, the men and women who have served their country will be honoured across the province, and Premier Stephen McNeil is encouraging Nova Scotians to participate in events.

“We live in a province with a strong and profound attachment to the military,” said Premier McNeil, also the minister responsible for military relations. “Nova Scotians deeply respect the contributions military members, both past and present, have made in serving our country.”

Each year at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, Nova Scotians gather in community halls, memorial parks and at cenotaphs to observe a moment of silence and mark the sacrifice of so many.

“Appreciating and remembering the brave men and women who have served this country brings families and communities together, helps foster a stronger nation and a greater appreciation of the sacrifices made for us all,” said Premier McNeil.

For information on Remembrance Day events, Nova Scotians can check with their local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion or their local municipality.
