THUNDER BAY – Across the region people came together to remember the brave men and women across Canada and around the world who have fought and served and in many cases gave their lives in the defence of freedoms.
At the Fort William Gardens in Thunder Bay a large crowd gathered to honour the ever smaller contingent of veterans from World War Two and the Korean Conflict. There are fewer and fewer actual veterans from World War Two who are still alive. The average age of a veteran from the Second World War is now 91 years of age.
The services at the Fort William Gardens were streamed live this morning. They are now available on Youtube and will be playing on Shaw Cable Ten in Thunder Bay as well.
