On November 11, especially, but also throughout the year, we have the opportunity to remember the efforts of these special Canadians. In remembering, we pay homage to those who respond to their country’s needs. On November 11, we pause for two minutes of silent tribute, and we attend commemorative ceremonies in memory of our war dead.
Wondering which side to wear your poppy? The poppy should always be worn on your left side, over the heart, according to the legion’s official guidelines.
According to the legion’s guidelines, the “over-the-heart” position is the most appropriate and respectful way to wear a poppy. However, the legion also says remembrance should be a “personal expression” for each Canadian — so there is no wrong way to do it.
The ILScorp offices will be closed Monday, Nov. 11 as we take some time to remember. We’ll be back Tuesday morning, ready to take your calls, answer your questions and register you for online insurance programs. You can also register for our insurance training programs online, anytime, at www.ilscorp.com
