Marking Remembrance Day in Côte Saint-Luc

I attended Remembrance Day ceremonies at Veteran's Park in Côte Saint-Luc on November 11. In past years the weather has been cold and the turnout dismal.

This year, at a time when some members of our military have lost their lives due to homegrown terrorists, Remembrance Day took on a new meaning across the country. In Côte Saint-Luc, warm temperatures for this time of year graced our morning. Our own veterans were out in force, headed by president Frank Levine. We also had a nice turnout from our Volunteer Citizens on Patrol (vCops),  senior staff and Police Station 9 Commander Marc Cournoyer. Councillors Mitchell Brownstein, Allan J. Levine, Sam Goldbloom and I represented council.  This was a very brief ceremony. We laid wreaths and heard the last post via trumpet. President Levine thanked all for coming and we went our separate ways, all expressing deep appreciation for the role our veterans have played in different wars.

It is sad to think that today, with terrorism rearing its ugly head around the world, young Canadian soldiers are being sent out to battle...sad because it ensures that we will be marking Remembrance Day for many generations to come.
