Remembrance Day 2020: Cold Hands Warm Hearts
With daily New Cases trending above 100 per day for the last week, Saskatchewan residents are being told to voluntarily reduce their contacts, outings.
Legion Branch #371 President Shaune Lapworth made the call to hold this year's Remembrance Day celebrations outdoors, despite the -19 "feels like" forecast; the wind was cold, the hearts were warm.
"There is something fitting about a small bit of suffering in the cold to remind us of the sacrifice this Day represents" Lapworth agreed. The short 20-minute event was punctuated by new faces following municipal elections earlier this week.
In attendance were the Leaders from all three members of the Tri-Communities, and only 20 chairs for seating as a nod to provincial guidelines; additional members of the public watched from afar on adjacent roads.
Flags flying included: Canada, Saskatchewan, RCMP, the Rangers, the British Crown, LLRIB, Treaty 6 1876, and the Metis Flag.
When asked about Aboriginal Veterans Day - November 8 each year - and possible integration Lapworth admitted "As Legion President I put a lot of the weight for that on my shoulders" adding "It's a always been a goal of mine" to bring the Holidays together in the north.

Sincere apologies to Constable Jung for replacing her great performance -- my camera's auto focus was loud and quite distracting, and I was quite a ways away.

Missinipi Broadcasting Corporation’s beginnings go back to the early 1980’s. Prior to that, the north had received merely token attention in the area of communications.
Today MBC is heard in well over 70 communities, including many southern cities where thousands of ‘Urban Aboriginals’ now make their homes but still wish to keep informed of what is going on in the north. MBC’s Cree and Dene programming is nationally recognized as leading the field in indigenous communications, and has been shared with audiences as far away as the Northwest Territories, Alberta, BC, and Ontario.
