Remembering SIFSOL

SIFSOLTomorrow is Remembrance Day here in Canada. This will be Misters first year attending as a civilian and we will be heading to our local schools ceremony. 45 minutes of my life to be thankful and remember those who have offered up the ultimate sacrifice for our country’s freedom. Time well spent and not one minute feels wasted.

Little asked him tonight if he had fought in the war with people killing people. 6 year old’s ask tough questions to which there are no simple answers.

The Trews – Highway of Heroes. 

Before this stretch of Highway 401 was renamed, normal civilians, veterans, soldiers, friends and family would line the overpasses from Trenton to Toronto and pay their respects to our fallen soldiers, giving them our thoughts and prayers as they take the drive to their final resting place.

On August 24, 2007, the portion of the 401 highway between Glen Miller Road in Trenton, Ontario and the Don Valley Parkway / Highway 404 Junction in Toronto, Ontario was designated the Highway of Heroes, as the road is traveled by funeral convoys for fallen Canadian Forces personnel from CFB Trenton to the coroner’s office in Toronto. On September 27, 2013, the Highway of Heroes designation was extended west to Keele Street in Toronto, to coincide with the move of the coroner’s office to the new Forensic Services and Coroner’s Complex at the Humber River Hospital.*

2 Thoughts on “Remembering SIFSOL

  1. I always attend the Remembrance Day ceremony at the cenotaph in Pembroke. Once when I was visiting my family I attended in Leamington.

    • Until we moved this year we had been going to the cenotaph in Pembroke, it’s always a moving ceremony and a great turn out regardless of the weather.
