Remembrance Day – Gunshots will be heard

Mother Canada Statue
This sorrowing figure of a woman represents Canada—a young nation mourning her dead.

The 49th Field regiment from Sault Ste. Marie will be participating in the annual Remembrance Day ceremony.

They would like the public to be aware of a ceremonial gun salute in the vicinity of the Roberta Bondar Pavilion around 11 a.m. Nov. 11, 2020.

The salute includes firing 105 mm blank ammunition during the ceremony.

There will be soldiers in uniform without weapons and a small detachment carrying service rifles as a ceremonial guard.

The unit is proud to be participating in the service to remember service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice serving our country.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to the unit.
