Remembrance Day Ceremony Brings Out Thousands

Saint Johners paying their utmost respect to our war veterans as thousands made the wet trek to Harbour Station for this year's Remembrance Day ceremony.

The army, police, and fire were just some of the groups taking part in the parade and ceremony.

89-year old veteran Gill Kenny fought in the Battle of the Atlantic and he tells CHSJ News he's happy to be here and enjoy the freedom that he and his friends fought for.

He says respect for veterans has grown over the years because veterans have begun to open up and share their stories.
