The annual Remembrance Day ceremony will once again take place Monday at the Canada Games Centre.
Doors will open at 8 a.m. for those with mobility difficulties, the City of Whitehorse said Thursday. They will open at 9 a.m. for the general public, with the ceremony starting at 10 a.m. and ending at approximately 11:40 a.m.
Whitehorse Transit will provide a free shuttle to the ceremony from the Takhini Arena between 8:15 a.m. and 1 p.m.
