This is what Remembrance Day looked like across Canada

Remembrance Day in Canada was more than just a controversy this year. As the clock struck 11 this morning, millions of Canadians across the country took a moment of silence to honour those who have fought and died for our country.

Despite the day's snowfall, groups congregated at war memorials in cities and small towns across the country.

Residents left poppies — which have had their fair share of controversy this year — along with flowers, wreaths and hand-crafted mementos.

Veterans and current members of the Canadian Armed Forces appeared in uniform to show their respect.

And kids at schools and sports centres wore their poppies with pride.

And to take a moment to remember their fallen comrades.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day and the 101st anniversary of the end of World War I.
