Lest We Forget

Thank you Veterans of Canada
-sidewalk message in front of Old City Hall cenotaph

Toronto District School Board joined the many groups laying wreaths at Old City Hall’s cenotaph ceremony this November 11th. Hours after the crowd had gone, people lingered to “plant” their poppies, take photographs, and read the banners on the colourful wreaths.

For King and Country welcomes Malvern Collegiate Institute, Parkdale Collegiate Institute, and Birch Cliff Heights Public School to our project. All three schools remember their “old boys” and “old girls” who marched away to war. They honour a total of 2,870 former students with a variety of memorials.

Old students remembered; new students reminded. Lest we forget. Thank you veterans of Canada.

And so say all of us.
