This is a day to remember and show respect to members of the Canadian Armed Forces who have died in the line of duty since World War I.
So that we can stop and remember their sacrifice, many stores will be closed for the morning or for the entire day. People wear a red poppy to remember the soldiers.
There will be no classes at Red River College and all offices will be closed.
