Watch for the Light on Remembrance Day

1 Comment

If you wish to take a few quiet moments to remember past and present wars and to honour veterans, you may wish to watch for the light to arrive at the Canadian War Museum. On Remembrance Day, at exactly 11 a.m EST, sunlight shines through a single window in Memorial Hall to frame the headstone representing Canada’s Unknown Soldier. Visit the Museum’s website for a live webcast.
