Following the Victory Square Armistice Day ceremonies, the veterans of Pacific Unit 280 go to Chinatown, and have a smaller more intimate and personal 2nd Remembrance Day ceremony for Chinese Canadian veterans.  This has always been followed by their traditional lunch at Foo's Ho Ho Restaurant.

The veterans march will begin approximately at 12:20 pm, and the ceremony will begin at the Canadian Chinese Pioneer monument at Keefer St. Triangle at 12:30pm.

I have attended past ceremonies since 2004
