In photos: Kelowna commemorates Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day in Kelowna looked different this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Legion branches across the province planned to have small indoor services on Nov. 11 but as B.C. saw an increase in COVID-19 cases, the Royal Canadian Legion B.C./Yukon command ordered branches to cancel their services.

The Kelowna branch went ahead with its wreath-laying ceremony at the Cenotaph, but it was closed to the public. Instead, the ceremony was filmed and will be broadcast on Shaw TV.

Local politicians were present at the ceremony, as were local veterans.
