Saint-Michel’s Muslim community is honouring those who have served Canada with a special ceremony.
This is the ninth year the Muslims for Remembrance campaign has taken place across the country, but Friday’s event in the neighborhood of Saint-Michel was the first one held in Montreal.
The solemn ceremony was organized by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at. It’s being celebrated now because it’s National Aboriginal Veterans Day, a memorial day observed in Canada in recognition of Indigenous contributions to military service.
