CSL holds its annual Remembrance Day Ceremony

A Remembrance Day commemoration ceremony took place on Friday, November 8, in the Council Chamber at City Hall. Members from the local Legion Brigadier Frederick Kish Branch 97, local schools and dignitaries  took part.

It was moved indoors due to the cold temperatures.  Three local veterans were recognized: George Nashen, Allan Rubin and former city councillor Isadore Goldberg.  Jean-Marc Dubois, the impeccably bilingual and valuable Manager of Operations  for Public Safety, served as the emcee. Former Councillor Allan J. Levine, whose late father was a veteran, is the president of the Legion. Mayor Mitchell Brownstein, D’Arcy McGee Liberal MNA David Birnbaum and Mount Royal Liberal MP Anthony Housefather, delivered remarks

With Isadore Goldberg.

There was the laying of wreaths and the participation of six  local schools: Merton and John Grant from the EMSB, JPPS and Bialik, Hebrew Academy, des Amis-du-Monde. The latter is the most significant take back from this ceremony. We need to continue to educate youngsters about the reason for Remembrance Day. There are few veterans with us today to share their stories. Eventually Remembrance Day will also place more of focus on the modern-day wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere.


Student participation.
