On this day, at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Great War ends. Similar to Veterans Day in the United States, today in Canada we observe Remembrance Day. We pause to remember and pay our respect to the members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty. We also honour those who have or are currently serving in the military. I want to share some of the history behind Remembrance Day in Canada.
