MONTREAL – The City of Côte Saint-Luc has released a video of its 1974 Remembrance Day ceremony to commemorate Canadian soldiers and share part of its history with the public.
The film, made 41 years ago, was donated by Sheldon Caplan, whose his parents Albert and Lily Caplan, were in the Royal Canadian Legion and Auxiliary.
The city digitized the 16-millimetre film and made it available on YouTube to honour Canadian veterans for Remembrance Day.
The film includes then-Mayor Samuel Moskovitch and other members of council.
“One of my goals has been to help gather old photos, films, documents and other artifacts from the history of Côte Saint-Luc,” said interim Mayor Glenn Nashen.
Côte Saint-Luc said the next step is to build a historical society.
