This year’s Remembrance Day ceremony came exactly 101 years to the day after the end of the First World War. Earlier this year, a major ceremony was held in France marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day, when thousands of Canadians stormed the beaches of Normandy with their British and American allies to fight Nazi Germany.
