The Canadian Remembrance Day ceremony took place at the Juno Beach Centre this November 11, 2016 at 3 pm in the presence of a large crowd, representatives of the Canadian Embassy in Paris and many Canadians.
After an address by Nathalie Worthington, Director of the Juno Beach Centre and Frédéric Pouille, Mayor of Courseulles, Luke and Alexandra, JBC guides read the poem In Flanders Field and Scott Entwistle, Visitor Service Manager of the museum made a presentation about his great-grand-father, a Canadian veteran of the Battle of Normandy.
The Act of Remembrance was read by Paul Racine-Sibulka, officer of the Canadian Navy Reserve and Peter Buckley, son of a Canadian veteran.
After the Last Post, Silence and Réveil, wreaths were laid and the ceremony ended with the national anthems.
We will remember them.
