The annual Remembrance Day ceremony took place on Monday with services at Prince George Civic Centre and the cenotaph at Veterans Plaza. The day started at Prince George Civic Centre with the Royal Canadian Legion Colour Party depositing the colours, followed by prayers, a reading of Flanders Fields, speeches from dignitaries, and the singing of both the National Anthem and the Royal Anthem. A parade led by the Prince George Pipe Band and Royal Canadian Legion Colour Party then made its way to the cenotaph at Veterans Plaza where wreaths were laid and a bugler played Last Post at 11:00 a.m. which was followed by two minutes of silence. Roughly 1600 people attended the service inside the civic centre with an estimated 3000 people taking in the ceremony at Veterans Plaza.
