Each November, the youth at the Juno Beach Academy of Canadian Studies host a Remembrance Day ceremony in the city's Field of Honour.

Students sit alongside soldiers and the veterans share their stories. 

It's an overwhelming sight, complete with bagpipes play and a prayer reading, followed by a moment of silence to honour those who have been lost.

Whatever the weather, On the 11th day of the 11th month, we remember through the simple act of planting a flag or choosing to wear a poppy.

However you show it, Canadians promise every year that they will never forget.
