Those attending this year’s Remembrance Day services will notice that for the first time the sacrifices of the 158 Canadian soldiers who died while on the Afghanistan mission between 2001 and 2014 are memorialized.
Chatham Kent council member Michael Bondy, shown here, made the motion to include that conflict on the monument in 2013.
Did anyone notice that 'rememberance' is spelled wrong…
Remembrance , check the spelling on the memorial please.
I am so disgusted. I have been out of the country. I am the very proud daughter of an amazing Koren War Vet named Gerry Lowes. I will pay to have this horseshit spellng error corrected. BUT it has to be before Nov 11. My office is right beside the cenotaph and when i am handing out warm cider, if that is NOT FIXED I WILL DUCT TAPE OVER IT. My sad reserves respect. He will be there in his war unform that he still can fit n to. chatham Council, fix this or I will. Mie, call me. 5193512888. Deb Lowes Verhey
Shame on you Chatham Voice. Lest we forget…how to spell .???????????? Deb Lowes Verhey
Shame on us? We didn’t carve the words into the cenotaph to commemorate the veterans who were part of the Korean conflict.
Harry, we spelled it correctly. We don't have the power as a newspaper to change the spelling on a public monument. The issues is looked at by those who do.
Jim, this is all my comment/commentary, not Harry's. I recognize your limited power as you have defined it; i erroneously presumed super spelling error / editting/publishing powers may have kicked in and noticed. My bad. Deb Verhey
