Hundreds packed Stride Place in Portage la Prairie this morning to take in the annual Remembrance Day ceremony.
Members of the Royal Canadian Legion, Portage RCMP, Southport and local youth cadets - all donning their respective traditional garb - had representatives on hand for the ceremony.
A moment of silence was followed by the traditional wreath-laying ceremony, placed at the foot of the cenotaph, with several different organizations taking part. Portage Mayor Irvine Ferris, MLA and Minister of Education and Training Ian Wishart each placed wreaths, as did a rep from Portage-Lisgar MP Candice Bergen's office.
