Mt. Prevost observance now a Nov. 11 tradition

On Remembrance Day, over 60 people were at the cairn on Mt. Prevost

On Remembrance Day, over 60 people were at the cairn on Mt. Prevost to honour those who have given their lives to keep our country strong and free. Tribute was also paid to those who continue to protect our freedom and to those who have suffered injury, both mental and physical. We thank you all.

I have great faith that our new prime minister will look after those who serve and have served our great country in a way befitting Canada.

In the late 1990s several members of the Cowichan Outdoor Group (now Cowichan Hikers) hiked up to the cairn to mark Remembrance Day. Slowly, over the years, others have joined us at the cairn: mountain bikers, hikers and families.
