A day of somber remembrance was held in communities around the country yesterday as citizens came together to mark Remembrance Day.
Dozens of  residents gathered at the Unchaga Hall Sunday morning to pay their respects for those who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. 

"It's so easy to take democracy and freedom for granted, but you see that screen today at the Remembrance Ceremony and you see the faces of young men and women who went off and never came home, and for us I think it is an important thing that we never lose sight of that," said Dawson Creek Mayor Dale Bumstead. 

This Remembrance Day also marked 100 years since the end of World War I, a war where 66,000 Canadians lost their lives in the battlefield .
