Younger Canadians plan to attend Remembrance Day services

A new survey shows a 10-per-cent spike in the number of people who plan to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony this year.

The poll commissioned by Historica Canada suggests Canadians of all generations are more likely to honour veterans this year — with millennial respondents expressing the most consistent enthusiasm for attending Remembrance Day events.

Historica C-E-O Anthony Wilson-Smith says the results challenge the theory that the generation with the fewest tangible connections to the two World Wars would be most likely to ignore Remembrance Day.
