REMEMBRANCE DAY SPECIAL HONOURS WAR HEROES AND MARKS THE 90TH ANNIVERSARY SINCE THE END OF WWII

(Ottawa, ON – November 6, 2008) To commemorate and honour war veterans and our Canadian military who have lost their lives in past and current conflicts, Global National will air a special Remembrance Day broadcast “Canada Remembers” on Tuesday, November 11th at 10:50 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. EST.

Marking the 90th anniversary since the end of WWII, Global National pays special tribute to fallen soldiers with live coverage of the Remembrance Day ceremony at the National War Memorial in Ottawa. Global National will also follow a group of Canadian school children visiting the historic site of Passchendaele, Belgium, as well as talk to Canadian soldiers currently serving in Afghanistan.

The team will speak one-on-one with the “Silver Cross Mother” to hear her tragic story of loss, as all of Canada continues to struggle with our modern day conflict in Afghanistan.
