Remembrance on a cold, wet day

The City of Toronto’s official Remembrance Day ceremony was held at the cenotaph in front of Old City Hall. Veterans toughed out the rain and cold to pay tribute to their fallen comrades. Mayor Rob Ford made what many consider a controversial appearance, giving a solemn speech and laying a wreath on behalf of the City of Toronto. Afterwards Ford went to shake veteran’s hands but one veteran refused to shake the mayor’s hand, after which he just pouted and returned to his seat.
