Representatives of the Canadian Armed Forces and the RCMP formed the honour guard around the Cross of Sacrifice during the Remembrance Day ceremony. Hundreds of soldiers, sailors and airmen stood in ranks on Grande Allée.

On a sunny but cold morning, hundreds of people gathered around the Cross of Sacrifice on Grande Allée on Nov. 11 to pay homage to the thousands of members of the Canadian Armed Forces who gave their lives while in service during the Great War, the Second World War, the Korean War, the Afghan War and other world conflicts.
