Legion Launches New Two Minutes of Silence Video

OTTAWA, ON--(Marketwired - October 30, 2014) - The Royal Canadian Legion launched a new two minutes of silence video on its website earlier today.

"The most sacrosanct and central element in Remembrance is the two minutes of silence. During this time of reflection, Canadians pause to honour, thank and remember our Fallen," says Dominion President of the Royal Canadian Legion, Tom Eagles.

Last Autumn, the RCL undertook a special project to capture the solemnity and highlight the significance of this period of reflection through the production of a special video appropriately entitled: "Two Minutes of Silence."

The premise is simple, yet powerful; a compilation of Canadians, all of whom will be wearing the Poppy, pausing for a moment to Remember. The central part of this video is two minutes in duration and has no spoken words or music. It is viewable on the Legion website and highlighted on our Facebook page and will be shown at Canada's National Remembrance Day Ceremony on November 11th 2014.
