Irrelevant and untrue. You don't speak for all the remarks made against the service held at the Kal Tire Place which is in poor taste.

Yes there is a cenotaph for a reason and if the few people there would like it honoured more than it was they are free to organize what they wish. The majority felt otherwise and the minority knows that.


Actually, regarding the other comments - it would be appreciated if you quoted them properly to their appropriate sources in that particular post you lumped them altogether, as they currently look to be all attributed to me - which is not the case.

As far as organizing a formal service, the veterans I'm sure will look after that themselves in the future - lord knows they've done everything else for themselves - and many others.

You are incorrect again - I did not lump them together but I did add Treeguy's name to make it clearer to you.

They've had many years to do so now.

The Legion put on the event at Kal Tire place.

The "official" place to hold the ceremony is wherever the heck the legion wants it. The Legion is Remembrance day.

I could understand this uproar if people just didn't attend a Remembrance Day ceremony, but many people did, and the only criticism some of you had is that they didn't do it your way. That's self entitled and childish.

As I've said in my earlier post I prefer going to the Cenotaph. I go to honour the sacrifice the Soldiers made over the years & continue to make. I don't need the pomp & ceremony to do that.
Added I can be silent on the 11th day of 11th month at 11th hour for more then moment, without all the distractions.
Just maybe those who have issues with large crowds can then come.
