Recent events in Quebec and Ottawa are sure to make this Remembrance Day a poignant one for Canadians, and it might come with some extra security as well.
Dalhousie University military analyst Ken Hansen says the recent attacks have had somewhat of an effect on Canadians.
“I think the public is feeling vulnerable, and it’s a good thing when they decide come together as a group to build a sense of security,” said Hansen.
With more people expected to be at cenotaphs in Halifax Tuesday, Regional Police will complement that sense of security with real security.
Const. Dianne Woodworth says the police presence at the cenotaph in downtown Halifax tomorrow will be larger than usual.
“In light of what’s happened, it seems to be the best route to take at this point,” said Woodworth.
She said rather than police wearing their dress uniforms, as they usually would for ceremonies, they’ll be wearing their day-to-day uniforms.
