Remembrance Day in the time of COVID

Remebrance Day-Canadapanda

It will be a vastly different Remembrance Day this year.

There will be no parade or wreath laying ceremony in Ottawa.

And most notably you won't see veterans handing out poppies and collecting donations.

Royal Canadian Legion spokesperson Nujma Bond says there will still be the traditional boxes that everyone is used to seeing.

In addition, she says they will continue selling poppy face masks.

So far Bond says they have already sold 37,000 masks.

Proceeds go toward The Poppy Trust Fund and The Legion.
