Remembrance Day - Wednesday, November 11
The Royal Canadian Legion is asking all Canadians to pause on Remembrance Day.
On Wednesday, November 11 at 11am, radio and TV signals will stop. Shops and schools, factories and farms will be still as silence sweeps across Canada like a wave.
This is a time to think about war, about peace, and about those men and women who risked their lives to protect our freedom and make the world a safer place.
They fought for us, for our country, and for our future.
Several Remembrance Day services have been organized throughout the community and Township of Langley Council encourages residents to attend, remember, and give thanks:
