Remembrance Day Ceremony draws young and old to Mac

Around Campus

Hundreds of people gathered around the permanent War Memorial on Macdonald Campus on Nov. 9, to pay tribute to the men and women who have served in Canada’s military.

Remembering the First World War

November 11 is the traditional day when Canadians stop to reflect on the sacrifice of the men and women who gave their lives in the name of freedom. But our campus also has daily reminders of their valour and loss. A new photo exhibition, currently on display in the main floor lobby of the James Administration Building, tells the story of how the McGill community’s aching need to remember the First World War forever marked our campuses.

Around Campus

As with every year, today’s Remembrance Day ceremony at Macdonald Campus saw a poignant mix of the young (elementary and high school students) with the old (mostly veterans and their spouses). And while it is easy to forget that these elderly veterans – many who now use canes, walkers and wheelchairs – were once capable of great acts of heroism, the speakers reminded the crowd that it is our duty never to forget.
