Remembrance Day 2020

UPDATED: City of Surrey to livestream Veterans’ Square Remembrance Day ceremony this year

General public will not be allowed in Veterans’ Square for Nov. 11 services this year

The Remembrance Day service at the Cloverdale Cenotaph may be closed to the general pubic this year, but people from all over can still be a part of it.

That’s because the City of Surrey has decided to live-stream the event on their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TheCityofSurrey.

The ceremony will begin on Nov. 11 at 10:30 a.m. and run until about 11:30 a.m.

Only about 50 people will be allowed in Veterans’ Square Nov. 11.

Legion representatives and other dignitaries will lay wreaths, such as those for the Silver Cross Mothers, the provincial government, the City of Surrey, the RCMP, and more.

Yalda Asadian, community enhancement manager for the City of Surrey, said she hopes everyone tunes in to the livestream Nov. 11.

“This year, many events have been cancelled or are no longer open to the public, therefore, we are encouraging our residents to still participate through viewing the ceremony online.”

Along with tuning in, Asadian said the City is encouraging residents to share poppy photos on Instagram with the hashtag #RememberInPlace and to visit the Museum of Surrey.

“We encourage our residents to visit the Museum of Surrey, which will be displaying the exhibition, Duty, Honour, & Izzat, to honour soldiers from the Indian subcontinent who fought in World War I. This includes the Indian army volunteers who upheld the honour of India on a global stage.”

That exhibition starts Nov. 4 and runs until Nov. 14.

Visitors must be pre-register to enter the museum. The museum will be closed on Remembrance Day.
