National Day of Honor

The Royal Canadian Legion is perplexed about why the federal government gave them so little time to prepare commemoration ceremonies across the region for today’s National Day of Honour.

The day is to mark the end of Canada’s mission in Afghanistan, however little notice was given.

Thunder Bay-Rainy River MP John Rafferty says several branches didn't have time to put something together.

No ceremony is planned locally, though residents are encourage to take two minutes of silence at 12:30 to honor our soldiers who died in the Afghan mission.
