Global News, November 9, 2014: “More Canadians plan to attend Remembrance Day ceremonies: poll“
Almost three in 10 Canadians say they plan to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony this year, according to a new poll.
That number is higher than last year and has been steadily rising for more than a decade, says Jeremy Diamond, executive director of The Vimy Foundation. Five years ago, around 18 per cent of Canadians surveyed said they would attend a service.
The poll, done by Ipsos Reid for The Vimy Foundation and released to Global News, found that 27 per cent of those asked planned to attend a service this year.
