Prince George, B.C.- Thousands of people  filled Veteran’s Square in front of Prince George City Hall  this morning to  be part of the  Remembrance Day service  at the Cenotaph.

With lights  flashing,  the RCMP  led  a parade  of  Veterans,  Legion members, Cadets,  RCMP, Prince George Fire Rescue,  Rocky Mountain Rangers  and others, who  marched in time  to the music  of the Prince George Pipe and Drum Band as  they made  their way  from the Civic Centre  to  Veteran’s Plaza.

Below are some images from this morning’s service
