With silence and salutes, Canadians mark Remembrance Day in Ottawa

Eleven tolls from the Peace Tower filled the air around Parliament Hill on Monday morning, marking the start of two minutes of silence as Canadians paused to remember and honour those who took up arms — and in some cases paid the ultimate price — to defend this country and its way of life. Similar scenes played out across the country at cenotaphs and memorials as the clock struck the 11th hour on Remembrance Day. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Gov. Gen. Julie Payette were among those laying wreaths at the National War Memorial in memory of those who died serving Canada.
