Walk for Peace and Remembrance
100th Anniversary of the First World War
Port Moody to Victoria British Columbia
November 5 to 6th, 2014
On Wednesday November 5th a delegation of Port Moody residents will mark the Centennial of the First World War in a unique and very important way. They will walk from their city’s cenotaph to British Columbia’s capital, to be officially welcomed by the legislative assembly, followed by laying of Port Moody’s poppy wreath at the Victoria Cenotaph.
They will walk for 100 kilometers almost non-stop, carrying the flag of their city and a single wreath. Their journey in period uniform will represent the sacrifices and contributions made by the citizens of Port Moody in the First World War.
Our walk has been granted the highest honour by being made an official delegation and our purpose is to remember the lives of those from Port Moody who lost their life in the Great War, and it is a way for us to encourage others to remember, and for us to pass along the message of Peace and Remembrance.
