Remembrance Day 2011

On this day, let us remember, reflect, and re-commit to war no more.

For those who want to mark this day a little differently, the soldier’s tower in Hart House is open every year on this day.  It’s an opportunity not just to remember those young people who lost their lives for Canada, but to see a lovely historic corner of the city.  The tower was built in 1923-24, originally to remember those young university students who lost their lives in the first world war.  Standing at 143 feet in height, it is still an imposing reminder to University of Toronto students today.
