Will There Be More People At Remembrance Day Ceremonies This Year?

A new survey shows a 10% spike in the number of people who plan to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony this year.
The poll commissioned by Historica Canada suggests Canadians of all generations say thay are more likely to honour veterans this year — with millennial respondents expressing the most consistent enthusiasm for attending Remembrance Day events.
Historica C-E-O Anthony Wilson-Smith speculates that part of the surge in interest stems from the fact that this year’s events will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
